As someone who isn't a big fan of grinding dried chiles at home, a quick online search yields a general consensus that 1 average Ancho chile is equal to about 1 heaping tablespoon of Ancho chile powder. I'd probably suggest that you start with a little less, make the recipe, then add to taste. Go for it!

Thanks for your replies. Could one sub with ground Ancho chile powder?

Ancho is always dry, fresh would be poblano.

So, YUP!
