Chile Descriptions:




     Ancho (AHN-cho) - Dried Poblano.  Heat: 3-5.  The Ancho is the sweetest of the dried chilies.  It has a mild fruity flavor with tones of coffee, liquorice, tobacco, dried plum, and raisin, and a little woody.  Indispensable for making sauces and moles.

     Cascabel (kas-kah-BELL) (AKA chile bola) - Dried cherry chile.  Heat: 4.  Thickly fleshed with a slightly acidic and tannic quality.  The rich flavors are a little smoky and woodsy with some tobacco and nutty tones.  Wonderful in sauces, salsas, soups and stews.  Seasons all.

     Chimayo (CHEE-MY-YO) - Dried chimayo.  Heat: 4.  A very flavorful chile.  Normally used in ground or crushed form.  It is produced from pure, seeded, stemmed and roasted chile pods with hearts removed, from the Chimayo Pueblo in New Mexico.  Makes a wonderful sauce, but can be used anywhere chile powder or crushed red chile is called for.

     Chipotle (chee-POHT-lay) (AKA chile ahumado or chile meco).  Smoked Jalapeno.  Heat: 5-6.  Medium thick fleshed, smoky and sweet in flavor with tobacco and chocolate tones.  Has a subtle, deep, rounded heat.  Widely used in Southwest cooking especially in soups, salsas and sauces.

     Mulato (mu_LOT-toe) - Smoked poblano.  Heat: 2-4.  A different variety of the poblano, than the one used for the ancho, is smoked to make the mulato.  The flavor is much smokier without the depth or lingering taste.  While the predominant tone is liquorice, there are hints of dried cherry, tobacco and horehound.  It is an essential ingredient in making the classic mole sauce and can also be used in the preparation of soups, stews, and other sauces.

     Pequin - (peh_KEEN) (AKA chile pequeno) - Dried chile pequin.  Heat: 8.  This domesticated form of the wild chile tepin is thinly fleshed.  It has a light, sweet, smoky flavor with citrus, corn and nutty tones.  The heat is deep, fiery and transient, slightly more intense than the tepin.  Used more for adding heat than flavor, it is used in making salsas, soups, sauces, and spice vinegar.
