Chile, New Mexican, Hot Red, Ground
This chile is of the same variety grown in and around Chimayo, New Mexico. Only select New Mexican red chile pods are chosen for this excellent tasting gourmet powder. There is great care taken with the production as all the stems and seeds are removed before grinding, leaving a slightly sweeter and much smoother tasting chile powder.
This hot chile powder rates about 6-7 on a heat scale of 1-10. An important ingredient for authentic New Mexican and Southwestern recipes, try it in sauces, soups and stews. Adds vibrant flavor to chili and molés.
