Mulato chiles are, like ancho chiles, a dried poblano pepper. However, the poblano in this case is allowed to mature on the plant until it turns bright red. The resulting pepper is much spicier in flavor. When dried into its mulato form the chile is much more bitter with a more intense flavor of raisins.

This chile is considered a must-have ingredient for authentic moles and makes any chile con carne far more intriguing. For those who have a fondness for homemade ice cream, ground some toasted and ground mulato chile into a base for dark chocolate ice cream or blackberry sorbet.
