Chili peppers are grown all over New Mexico, but cultivation is so prolific in the southern part of the state that it’s known as “The Chili Trail” with the small village of Hatch serving as the focal point. Dubbed as “The Chile Capital of the World,” Hatch produces a prized variety of chili pepper that goes by the same name and is home to the annual Chile Queen Festival.

what else you should know

powdered new mexican chili pepper

Chili pepper pods, which are technically berries, are consumed around the world fresh, dried and pickled. The spice provides sweet and sour flavor to Korean kimchi and other fermented foods and fiery heat to Sichuan, Thai and Vietnamese specialties. Of course, chili pepper is also widely used in Mexican and Spanish foods.

The heat of the chili pepper is due to a chemical compound called capsaicin, which produces a burning sensation on contact. However, because capsaicin eventually turns off specific pain signaling chemicals in skin cells, it is approved by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration as a topical analgesic agent in over-the-counter creams and lotions.
