Default Good Place to Buy Ground Ancho Chile Powder?

I've fallen in love with making chili. The recipe I've been using calls for buying dried ancho chiles and grinding them in the food processor. Not too hard but it would be nice to be able to skip that step. Seems like there are plenty of places to buy California, guajillo and New Mexico chile powder but I never see the ancho available in powder form.

Good question. Ground Ancho used to be available in abundance here. I have not been able to find it for a couple of years. My recourse has been to buy the bags of dried Anchos and grind them at home.

I have a bottle in the cabinet from Mccormick's. I know their spices are a little pricey but I found local market that sells bulk spices for a fraction of the cost. Next time I'm there I will look to see if they carry it. I would have to agree that this chili powder is awesome and I use it my chili as well. It has smokey goodness! Vince

Pendry's will have it , they have a large selection of chiles, ground and whole . I order about 3-4 lbs of various chile powders a year, as well as other spices from them . Good quality and fresh....

I have a bottle of McCormick's Chili Powder. I did a taste/smell test and it does seem to have a taste similar to ancho. I'll have to try it in my next pot of chili.

I can't find it around here either. I also buy dried chiles and grind them in the food processor. I toast them in the oven just a little bit before grinding.

Look what I found. McCormick Ancho Chile Powder.
Cash & Carry has McCormick spices so I guess I need to stop by this week.

Competition chili cooks use either Penderey's or Mild Bill's.

I have a cabinet full of spices from both...

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

I was planning to check the Mexican grocery stores as well. There is a huge Latino population here in The Boise area and lots of Latin markets. Of course that means lots of good Mexican food too!

I like stuff from Penzeys. I don't see a store in ID but you can always order online. Their stuff seems to be of good quality and decent prices.

I use 1/2 and 1/2 Ancho Chili Powder and Chipotle powder in my rub. I get most of my spices from here:
http://spicebarn.com/

Good prices and have been very reliable so far.
