Our El Jefe–variety Red Jalapeño chili peppers are grown on Fire Tongue Farms in California. Unlike most jalapeño peppers, which are picked while still green, these peppers ripened on the vine, turning bright red and very sweet. They're medium-hot and are perfect for cooking or garnishing, in a tomato sauce, with eggs or on fresh fruit.

Santa Cruz, California

Chipotle (unsmoked)

Sun-dried & ground

Capsicum annuum v. Jalapeño

While we do not make any health claims on any of our spices, there has been some historic and limited recent evidence that chilis can potentially be helpful for:

  • Cancers: Capsaicin shows potential natural cytotoxic and anticancer properties. (ABCDEFG)
  • Increased Longevity: Several studies have shown a significant decrease in mortality associated with regular consumption of chili peppers. (ABC)
  • Cardiovascular Disease, Hypertension and Cholesterol: Diets containing chili peppers have shown a correlation with decreased cardiovascular mortality, improved blood pressure and potential for cholesterol reduction. (ABCD) 
  • Osteoarthritis/Pain: Utilizing capsaicin shows potential improvement associated with  chronic osteoarthritis pain, post-herpetic neuralgia and neuropathy. (ABC)   
  • Digestive Health: Chili peppers and capsaicin have been shown to have a gastroprotective effect in peptic ulcer disease, a beneficial effect on human gut microbiota and gastric emptying, and a potential to improve dysphagia symptoms. (ABCDEF) 
  • Obesity: Regular consumption of capsaicinoids show a reduction in appetite and abdominal fat tissue levels, and an increase of energy expenditure. (ABCDEF)
  • Antimicrobial Benefits: Chilis inhibit various microbial pathogen growth, and have the potential to be used as antimicrobials. (ABCD) 
  • Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes: The target receptor of capsaicin (TRPV1) is present on many metabolically active tissues, and may show potential to treat the cluster of risk factors associated with metabolic syndrome and help regulate blood sugar levels. (AB)

Further clinical studies are warranted and in progress. Please always consult your healthcare provider. This is not intended as medical advice.

Bright flavor!

I love the Red Jalapeno flakes so much that I'm now giving some as gifts. It's a beautiful bright flavor with just the right amount of heat. I've used this in a few dishes, but the most interesting addition was to mushroom & shallot quiche. It certainly elevated the dish!
