Once dried, Poblano chiles are called ancho or chile ancho. “Ancho chiles are widely considered a culinary delicacy and Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur is created using Puebla’s signature crop,” reports Camille Austin. “Pleasantly sweet, followed by the moderate heat from the chile, Ancho Reyes is delicious in all types of cocktails. Pair your rajas with the Gavilán cocktail.”
