RECIPES USING ANCHO CHILES (by Diana Kennedy)
ANCHOS are the favorite chile for flavoring Chili Con Carne. Toast in
skillet as shown below and either soak and blend to puree, or place in
blender or coffee grinder and make chili powder. One Ancho equals 1 Tbsp.
TO PREPARE ANCHOS: Toast 4 large Ancho chiles lightly on a griddle,
turning from time to time so that they do not burn, for 2-4 minutes. Slit
chiles and remove seeds, veins and stems. Put chiles into a bowl and cover
with boiling water. Let stand 20 minutes.
