The dried Ancho is a mildly spicy pepper with a black-brown color and a fruity, smoky taste. The Ancho is the dried and ripe variant of the Poblano and is a commonly used pepper in Mexican cuisine. The Ancho pepper is an important ingredient in many chili powders, salsas and sauces. Likewise, it is an essential ingredient in many Mexican Moles.

The Ancho and Mulato are both dried varieties of the Poblano . The difference between the two dried peppers is the harvest time. Ancho peppers are picked when they are ripe and red for harvest, while the Mulato peppers continue to ripen on the plant until they are dark red and almost fall off the plant. The dried Ancho is slightly more fruity in taste compared to the dried Mulato which has a riper and smoky taste, both peppers are mildly hot.
