Chile, Jalapeno, Ground
Native to Mexico, jalapenos were named after Jalapa, the capital city of Veracruz. Although they are still grown in Mexico where they are also known as huachinangos and chiles gordos, they are cultivated in Texas and the southwest United States. This dark green pepper with a fruity, yet spicy hot flavor is about 4 or 5 on heat scale of 1 to 10.
Habitual chile eaters will find that you can develop immunity to the heat. In South India and Mexico it is said that babies are given chiles as pacifiers!
We carry two dehydrated cuts, ground jalapeno and diced. Use ground jalapeno in chili, sauces and salsa. Try these anywhere you’d like a little extra kick!
