Spicy or Mild, Chili Pepper Popularity is Growing

Chili peppers originated in Mexico and Central America and are one of the oldest cultivated crops in the world. Today, they continue to be a staple in Mexican cuisine and have expanded to cuisines worldwide. According to the American Spice Trade Association (ASTA), the United States is the top importer of chili peppers in the world, which demonstrates the fast-growing popularity of chili peppers and spicy foods in the U.S.

Chili peppers are most famous for capsaicin, which is responsible for their spicy flavor and may also support a healthy inflammation response, metabolic, and heart health.1, 2 Although chili peppers are used to season and are rarely the main ingredient, their heat often makes them the primary flavor. They pair well with tomatoes, cilantro, and lime peel.

Our red (hot and sweet varieties available) and green (mild) chili peppers are available in flakes, crushed, or ground into powder. They can be used as pizza toppers or in pizza sauce, in seasoning blends, Instant Pot ready meals, instant noodle seasoning sachets, packaged rice and pasta meals, frozen skillet meals, sausages, meat-based snacks like salami, and many other applications.
