NEW MEXICO PEPPER, DRIED N WHOLE, DELICIOUS SPICY DRIED HERB
HARVESTED, DRIED AND PACKAGED BY HAND IN RE SEAL ABLE AIR TIGHT BAGS (EACH BAG IS INDIVIDUALLY LABELED). The world has discovered what we've known all along here in New Mexico ...chile is habit-forming! Whether enjoying dishes made with pungent green chile or mellow dried red peppers, we're hooked! And while the same ingredient in chile that supposedly makes it slightly habit-forming (capsaicin) is also the one that may burn your tongue, it's the delicious variety of flavors in chile cuisine that we love, not just the heat. For our purposes here, we're not going to explore Jalapenos, Habaneros, Cayenne, or the multitude of other peppers preferred mainly for their heat. When we say "Chile", we'll be talking about the long New Mexico Green/Red types, with names like "Big Jim", "Rio Grande","Sandia", etc. In other parts of the country you'll see similar (but not quite the same!) chile peppers called "Anaheim" peppers. In our neck of the woods, it's "Hatch" or "Mesilla Valley" chile that we crave.
