Most chili contains Jalapeno peppers,
which are a medium size chili pepper and have an attractive green
color with a slightly waxy texture.
Jalapenos are commonly used in spicy dishes, sauces and salsas. It is a common additive in many Mexican dishes. The Jalapeno is considered a slightly medium to hot pepper, yet it is really more flavorful than hot.
They grow well in any warm climate and are a favorite of farmers in the Southwestern United States and Mexico.
Jalapenos are commonly sold canned and can be found whole or sliced, though they are generally preferred sliced.
They are great on tacos and burritos, adding just the right amount of heat and flavor.
A chipotle is an Jalapeno that has been smoked to add extra flavor.
