The jalapeno is probably this country’s most widely recognized and used chile.
While the smoked dried jalapenos are quite popular, this unsmoked, dried jalapeno powder is much more difficult to find.
Jalapenos are popular due to their earthy-grassy flavor with medium heat. On the Scoville Heat Unit scale these come in at 2,500-8,000 or about a 4-5 on the heat scale.
Use jalapeno powder blended in your corn bread, chili, salsa, sauces, spice blends, stews, and taco meat. Sprinkle over chicken, eggs, pork chops, popcorn, and vegetables.
