The Anaheim chili, or New Mexico chili, is the definitive chili in southwestern American cooking, and also figures in Tex-Mex and modern fusion cuisine. This is one of my favorite ingredients, basically an “American paprika” in its ability to lend color, texture, and mild flavor enhancement to complex stews or sauces. It has a very mild warmth and the characteristic tang and hint of sweetness of a red bell pepper, and acts as a thickener and adds depth of color to soups and sauces. Extremely versatile, balances well with savory, hot, or sweet flavors, and is excellent in blends involving earthy, aromatic, or sharp spices such as cumin, oregano, thyme, mushrooms, or another chili. Use as a substitute for paprika in any recipe for a mildly sweet, smooth variation to your cooking.
