Our Smoked Chipotle Chili peppers are grown on Fire Tongue Farms in California and smoked over fruit tree branches pruned from a nearby orchard. A chipotle is a smoked jalapeño pepper, so these are the darker, deeper siblings to our El Jefe-variety Red Jalapeños. They're medium-hot and are perfect for cooking or garnishing, in a tomato sauce, with eggs or on fresh fruit.

HEALTH BENEFITS

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)
