Jalapeño Chile Pepper
$6.50 – $20.80
Traditionally cultivated in Veracruz, Mexico, this Chile Pepper has also become a favorite of the Southwestern United States. Not too hot and not too mild, it is delicate in its dried form and should be added to foods for finishing.
Just before serving, add to Southwestern dishes, guacamole, corn bread, salad dressings, eggs, potatoes and vegetables for a little kick. It will lose its flavor and heat if added too early in the cooking process.
