Tips

Expert Tips

  • Ancho chiles are dried poblano chiles. Rich and fruity, ancho chiles are the sweetest of the dried chiles. For a spicier dish, add another ancho chile.
  • Use a kitchen scissors to snip the chiles, or use a very sharp knife to chop them.
  • Serve this chops and stuffing combo with a tomato and cucumber salad. Add diced jicama and avocado and toss the salad with a lime vinaigrette. Sprinkle the salad with chili powder and chopped fresh cilantro.
