New Mexico Hot Crushed Red Chile Pepper
There are a lot of red chile peppers, but there is only one true New Mexican Red Chile Pepper, and that is grown in and around Hatch, New Mexico. Hot days, cool nights, and family traditions give this legendary New Mexican pepper its unmistakable character. This is the true New Mexico Hot Crushed Red Chile Pepper, hand harvested, slow dried, and hand packed for your cooking pleasure. Slow drying gives a rich, earthy, sweet taste and a brighter red color.
Our New Mexico Hot Crushed Red Chile Pepper is sun-dried. Sun-dried chile requires a longer process and one in which nearly everything is done by hand. This chile retains its natural orange color as it is not darkened in an oven. The taste is rich, earthy and sweet. The availability of sun-dried chile is more limited and this chile is more expensive. Once you taste the difference you’re hooked!
