Ingredient Notes: Poblano peppers can be fiery or relatively mild; theres no way to tell until you taste them. Find them at most large supermarkets.Ancho chile peppers, one of the most popular dried chiles used in Mexico, are dried poblano peppers. They have a mild, sweet, spicy flavor. Ground ancho chile pepper can be found in the specialty-spice section of large supermarkets, or substitute ground chili powder plus a pinch of cayenne.Cooking Tip: Wrap corn tortillas in foil and bake at 300°F until steaming, about 10 minutes.Tip: To oil a grill rack: Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack.
