Mexico’s Hatch valley, known as the chile capital of the world, produces the finest green chile’s used in our New Mexico Green Chile Powder. It takes 18 pounds of fresh green chiles to make one pound of this dehydrated chile powder. This is a tasty, mild chile powder made only with Ground Green New Mexico Chiles and packed with a pungent but semi-sweet flavor.
The green chiles, a.k.a capsicum annuum, are picked before they ripen to red. They are harvested after a quick growing season and before they begin to ripen, by the end of summer. After dehydrating the chiles they are de-stemmed and ground into a fine powder.
