Ancho Chili Brownies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Galley Wench

Rich delicous brownies with a subtle hint of spice. Note: Use only ANCHO CHILI powder as it is a smokey slightly spicy chili powder!

Top Review by Queen Dana

I loved these brownies. I've made the recipe a couple times now and took them to work once. The chile spice is subtle and you don't taste the smokiness at first. The instructions aren't 100% but nothing's missing that couldn't be figured out.
