    Hi Pati. Would ground ancho be a good substitute for the Chile’s de Arbol ?

      Hi Ed, the thing is that Chile de Arbol is hot and spicy while Ancho tends to be milder and kind of sweet. So if you don’t mind losing the heat, yes, you can go with Anchos. If you want at least some spiciness, then try Chipotles. Enjoy!

    Could you do this with any veggie? I don’t like chiles so I would leave them out but my sister & I have bought what look like freeze dried veggies at a fair & I always wondered how they made them. They just had salt & the veggies. I loved them! Thanks for this! I have some organic carrots I would love to try this with but I’m not a sweet potato fan. I’d like to try green beans which I have had also & maybe peas. Would it work the same?

      Go ahead and give it a try Gail. I think zucchini would be pretty good as well!
