F A Q
How to use Dried Ancho Chiles?
Poblanos are dried into Ancho Chile Peppers and can, therefore, be stored and used for a longer period of time. Ancho Chiles can be used in two ways. One of the most common ways of using Ancho Chile Peppers is by soaking them in hot water, usually for about 30 minutes to restore them. Alternatively, they can be ground and directly used in cooking. Using them pureed evenly distributes their flavor in the dish. When properly stored under airtight conditions or in a freezer, they can last up to a year long.
How to rehydrate Ancho Chiles?
Re-hydrating your chiles is easy! Just follow these easy steps:
- Scoop out the insides of the dried chiles with a knife. You can do this step after they are rehydrated and then set them aside.
- Heat a large pan to medium-high heat and dry roast the peppers about 30-60 seconds per side. They will become slightly puffy, but this step is optional.
- Grab your peppers and pour the boiling water over the chiles then afterwards cover them and allow to sit 15-30 minutes, depending on the thickness of your peppers.
- Remove from water and use as needed.
