Ancho chilies have a mild, fruity and slightly sweet taste. They start out as fresh green Poblano chilies and after being ripened to red and then dried, they become shriveled, smoky and dark brown in color.
Left to dry, the chilies can be crushed and made into spice powder or used to season chili and other Mexican dishes such as mole and tacos.

The restaurant customers were pleased. It is now a favorite restaurant chili recipe.
Preparation time: 30 minutes for preparing the sauce. Serves 6-8.
