Ancho: Ancho chile is a dried, reddish-brown chili pepper that is approximately 4 inches long and 3 inches wide. The pepper has a sweet smoky flavor and a wrinkled skin. The ancho is a slightly sweet mild dried Chile with a smell very similar to raisins. It has a lot of flesh which gives sauces and salsas good body. Sauces prepared with anchos have a rich, deep red color which looks beautiful on a plate. Anchos add a lot of flavor to a dish but little-to-medium heat. If you are new to cooking with dried chiles, this ons is a good one to start with.
Guajillo: Guajillo Chiles are dried, shiny, leathery, red orange-red chiles used throughout Mexico as a base for rich salsas and sauces. They add a complex fruity flavor with bland to moderate amounts of heat. Guajillo chiles are the most commonly grown chiles in Mexico, and are sold whole, dried. Its green tea flavor with berry tones and sweet heart is perfect to make salsa for tamales or other salsas, pastes, butters, and rubs to flavor all kinds of meats and chickens; soups and stews. Guajillo chilies add a savory tomato and is a great base flavor for use in combination with cumin, oregano, chipotles and can be used to make a bolder chile paste for sauces or for the start of your dish.
Arbol: Arbol chiles are a small yet potential chili pepper found in Mexico which is also termed as bird’s beak chile or rat's tail. They are approximately 5 to 7.5 cm in length. These peppers grow as green and gradually turn out as red in color when they start maturing. They have a very bright and clean heat which can enhance the flavor of the foods. Even the bright red color makes this chile a great ingredient for garnishing and crafting. Arbol Chile Peppers are good for spicing your food. They can be used to add spice and heat in salsa, chili, and hot sauces. You only need to add a few pieces of the arbol chile pepper to add heat to your food.

Great spice collection. Excellent flavor. Nice addition to the kitchen.
I am so pleased with this purchase. Made some red stacked cheese enchiladas using the arbol and the guajillo powders. They were spicy and delicious. Can’t wait to try the ancho spice. Delivery was expedite. I highly recommend this product. Thank you
I received my order very quickly, I wanted the powder verses the dry peppers;I used this for Birria and it was amazing!
Good tasting and fresh ground so as to save some time. The ground pepper assortment gives many options of enhancing your dish.
What I like most about these three chile powders is that they are powders created from single chile varieties. I.e., many ground chile powders are generic and comprised of different chiles. Therefore, you don't usually know what those chiles are, and subsequently know neither the flavor nor the heat quotient of the powder. Additionally, the 4 oz. size of each of these chile powders is quite generous, and appx. 54% more product than the usual 2.4/2.62 oz. size offered by most spice retailers. Couldn't be happier to have these three unique and flavorful ground chiles for all my cooking needs.
