Ancho Chili Ribs I created this recipe out sheer desperation; I had been living in San Francisco for 15 years with outdoor yard or grill- classic city living. I missed BBQ and decided to do something about it! This is an unbeatable recipe for die-hard rib fans that you can make in your own kitchen using your oven. High temperature roasting crisps and caramelizes while keeping the ribs tender and succulent inside. Enjoy an urban spin on ribs!
