Kraft Kitchens Tips

How to Make Ground Ancho Powder
Heat oven to 350ºF. Place 1 ancho pepper, stem and seeds removed, on baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 min. or until fragrant. Place pepper in food processor; cover. Process until finely ground; set aside. (You should have about 2 Tbsp. ground ancho pepper.) If you don't have a food processor, use a coffee or spice grinder to grind the ancho pepper.
Special Extra
Place a knife and spoon on top of the cake and sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar through a strainer to create a pretty design on top of the cake.
Substitute
Prepare as directed using BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream and COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping.
