Jalapeno Chili Powder
Jalapeno Chili Powder has a spicey and fruity essence, like a bell pepper with heat. The powder is made from grinding dried whole jalapenos, both seeds and pod. The seeds are the spiciest part of the fruit. Jalapenos are naturally gluten-free and are the only ingredient in this powder giving it a one hundred percent pure authentic flavor.
Jalapeno peppers are the most widely used and popular mild spiced peppers in the United States. They are a green oblong pepper about two inches long. Jalapenos are mostly produced in Mexico and are named after the capital city of Veracruz, Jalapa. In Mexico, they are also called chiles gordos and huachinangos. Today, they are also cultivated throughout the Southwestern United States and largely grown in Texas.
This worldwide popular pepper has a spicy kick without burning your palate. On the Scoville Heat Scale, they hit between 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville heat units or about half a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the hottest. Jalapeno contains capsaicin, the chemical compound that makes peppers spicy. A bell pepper doesn’t contain any capsaicin, for reference, and therefore doesn’t contain any spice.
Capsaicin does a little bit more than add spice to a pepper. It also helps burn fat and control appetite making it a good addition to a healthy diet.
Use Jalapeno Chili Powder in sauces, spice mixes, meat rubs, chilis, guacamole, and salsa dips. It’s perfect for Tex-Mex cuisine and authentic Mexican dishes. Jalapeno Chili Powder gives food that jalapeno flavor and spicy kick without biting into pepper pieces which turns some people away from the spicy pepper flavor. Replace regular red chili powder with Jalapeno chili powder in any recipe you want to spice up a bit more.
