Jalapeno Chile Powder


Jalapeno Chile (Capsicum Annuum) powder is a 100% pure chile powder made by grinding whole jalapenos, both the seeds and the pod. Using pure Jalapeno Powder provides an authentic flavor. Jalapeno Peppers are named after the town of Jalapa in the state of Veracruz in Mexico. Jalapeno is the most widely used chile pepper in the United State. The whole Jalapeno is about 2 to 3 inches long and 1-1/2" wide and bright to dull green in color. If left on the vine to mature the Jalapeno will turn red. This is a thick fleshed pepper with a hot green vegetable flavor. On the heat scale of 1 to 10, Jalapeno is about a 6.5 or approximately 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville heat units. Add Jalapeno Powder to any recipe calling for Chile Peppers, like enchilada sauces, chili, stews, and salsas
