New Mexico Chiles are grown throughout the southwestern United States and may be referred to as Anaheim, California or Colorado Chile Peppers depending on the location of their cultivation.
Our New Mexico Chile Powder is true Hatch New Mexico Chile Powder, made from grinding only whole New Mexico Chiles grown in the Hatch Valley of New Mexico. Stretching along the Rio Grande, the soil and growing conditions in the Hatch Valley create a unique terroir which contributes to the flavor of chile grown there.
