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.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
