Uses For Dried Ancho Powder? I just bought a pound!

monavano | Jun 24, 2011 08:56 AM

I recently made a SC mustard-based bbq sauce that called for ancho powder, alas, I had none on hand so I used Chili 3000 from Penzey's. While the result was tasty, I know it didn't do the recipe justice. So, I went to Amazon and ordered a 1 pound jar from McCormick's.
I'm thinking to use it in rubs, chili and this particular bbq sauce, but are there any applications where the ground ancho really shines or really makes a difference in comparison to other dried peppers?
Thanks all!
