The northern New Mexico town of Chimayo is famous for its red chile sauce made from this heirloom variety. More accurately classified as a warm pepper than a hot one, Chimayo’s rich sweet flavor stays in the foreground. 3-6” peppers ripen early, making it a good choice for short season regions & climate challenges. Selected by Slow Food’s “Ark of Taste” as a threatened American food tradition.
