Brownies flavored with toasted ancho chili pepper.
There are many ways to toast anchos. My method is to remove the stem and seeds, break the pepper into pieces and toast the pieces in a dry skillet. When toasted, I then grind the pepper in an old coffee grinder. This freshly ground pepper is coarser than packaged ancho powder, so if you use this method I recommend using 2-3 teaspoons as opposed to 1 ¼.
