The Story of Chimayo Red Chile goes back hundreds of years. It's rooted in the traditions of native peoples and proud farmers tending to rows of vibrant green crops generation after generation. It's about heirloom seeds, crystal waters from the Sangre de Cristo Mountain snowmelt, fervid soil of the Rio Grande Valley, and an intense sun that ignites a flavor like no other. Red Chile pods are sun-dried to a deep orange color, stemmed, seeded and ground. The rich, hot Chimayo heritage taste is one-of-a-kind, truly legendary!
