A big block of extremely versatile ancho chile paste.
These pastes can be used in place of dried ancho chiles, no soaking or pureeing required. A great step saver in the kitchen. Use whenever you would normally use dried or canned chiles.
Simply add some to a pan with a little broth and it becomes a convenient flavourful sauce. While perfect for many Mexican dishes, you can also use it for a quick flavour boost to chops, chicken, steaks etc.
Ancho chiles are one of the three 'holy trinity' chiles used in the traditional mole sauce and a cornerstone ingredient in Mexican cooking.
