JALAPENO CHILI PEPPER TRIVIA

Jalapeno Pepper

Jalapeno Chili (Chile) Peppers: Most often green when mature but sometimes red, these peppers are about 2 inches in length with cracks around their stems. They are very hot, with an immediate bite. Jalapenos are sold canned, sliced, and pickled and are added to many products during processing including sausage, cheese, and jelly.

Pace Foods uses more fresh jalapenos than anyone else in the country - 22 million pounds a year.

Texas has 2 official peppers, the jalapeno and the chiltepin (both used in its official dish, chili)

Jalapeno pepper jelly originated in Lake Jackson, Texas and was first marketed commercially in 1978.
