Poblano Peppers

500-2,500 Scoville units

One of Mexico's most popular peppers, poblanos (pictured on the left) actually come from Puebla — the Mexican state where Cinco de Mayo is observed. Poblano peppers start out purplish or green in hue, eventually becoming a dark red-black as they ripen, resembling a bell pepper (pictured on the right), but not as large and pointed at the bottom. They tend to be as mild as Anaheim peppers, although occasionally a poblano will show serious heat. Poblanos are fried, stuffed, or used to make poblano sauces like mole poblano. When they're dried, they become ancho chilis.

Now that is interesting. All this time I thought ancho and poblano peppers were two different things.
