Chile Mulato is a mild, richly flavoured variety of a dried ripened poblano chilli.
Related to the ancho chilli, mulato chillies are wrinkly and have a deeper, more savoury flavour. They are most commonly used to make traditional sauces like mole but can also be rehydrated and stuffed.
- Chocolate brown colour
- Wrinkly + High flesh to skin ration
- Notes of: dried fruit, bitter chocolate + licorice
Make ice cream with a kick by adding a little mulato chilli paste to chocolate custard before churning in an ice cream maker, or to a brownie mix before baking.
Chile Mulato 100%
Lightly toast then rehydrate mulato chillies to release their flavour. Wipe clean and remove stems and seeds. Open out flat and toast briefly in a dry pan on a medium heat until fragrant, then soak in just boiled water for 15 minutes. Drain and blend to a paste with a splash of water before using. Always wash your hands after handling chillies!
Keep in a cool dry place for storage.
