A question about a recipe: Braised Pork in Lazy Cherry Ancho Mole

D3cc9eca 7db3 42aa 8448 112b6ae40640  2016 0809 braised pork cherry mole sauce recipe bobbi lin 2259

I have a question about the recipe "Braised Pork in Lazy Cherry Ancho Mole" from Savory Love. I hope this isn't a stupid question, but it was not obvious to me: are the chills dried? I'm assuming so since the first step is soaking them.

Yes, it would be dried. Anchos are called Poblanos when they are fresh.

You can find ancho chiles at most supermarkets, we’ve found. However, they’d be much cheaper if you go to a Mexican market if there’s one near you.

Poblanos are the green form of this pepper. Ancho, the mature version, is nearly always sold dried but, if you grow your own, they are great fresh.
