PeppaFam Series: Pepe Poblano

Originated from Mexico near the city of Pueblo, these mild, heart-shaped chiles is just one of those peppers with huge interiors perfect for stuffing delicious fillings (also known as picadillos). Some are filled with black beans, fresh steamed white corn kernels, cheese, garlic, onions, and many more...The poblano holds up well under grilling which enhances its velvety rich taste. Young poblanos such as Pepe, have dark green skin and mature to red or brown. Dried Poblanos are called Mulatos or Anchos and they are awesome ingredients for soup or sauces.

PeppaFam Series: Jay-Jay Jalapeno

A little burst of spiciness, dark smooth skin, and a joy to taste is what makes this cute little green pepper among the top favorites. Jay-Jay Jalapeno usually hangs out at the soup/salad bars, potato chip/nacho aisles, local sandwich and sub places, movie theaters, and more...It's pretty obvious why he's the most popular pepper among many cooks, chefs, and consumers all around the world.

PeppaFam Series: Mr. Habanero

A native of the Amazon basin, Mr. Habanero is one of the most intense and super-spicy chili peppers in the world. He enjoys being in a hot climate, but too much sun can be damaging to his skin. The Habanero's heat, its fruity, citrus-like flavor and floral aroma have made it a popular ingredient in hot sauces and spicy foods. Mr. Habanero also enjoys a cool glass of water from time to time.
