5160 Chimayo Chile
Grown in the heart of New Mexico, in Chimayo, this chili is a local luxury. A distinctive red-orange chile grown only in this community, and in small batches by the farmers. Despite it's huge popularity, this chile is grown from original heirloom seeds passed down from generations, so outsiders can not hybridize and grow their own version of this unique chile.
At Spice Traveler, we have gone to New Mexico, walked the markets and talked to the farmers and purchased for you the genuine, real chile. Don't buy a counterfeit!
This batch of Chimayo is HOT, with a unique earthy taste. A superb addition to your culinary pantry! Enjoy!
