Mulato peppers are dried versions of the popular poblano pepper.
However, though they come from the same pepper as ancho chilies, mulato
chilies tend to be sweeter, softer, and darker in color. Mulato peppers
are often used to replace ancho peppers in the trinity of chilies (with pasilla negro chilies and gaujillo chilies) used to make traditional mole. Mulato peppers possess mild heat with an earthy fruitiness.
