Chile by Region
Chile is grown on every continent except Antarctica—and each region of the world is filled with its own unique variety of chile that has its own distinct flavor and heat! Some of the more popular chiles come from the following places:
Mexico has the largest chile market in the world! They have a wide variety of chiles ranging in flavor and heat. Their most popular chiles include Habaneros, Jalapenos and Chipotle (a smoked Jalapeno).
When people refer to New Mexican chile, they are talking about Anaheim chiles that are grown in New Mexico. But don’t think that these chiles are your run-of-the-mill Anaheims. Taking on the unique flavor profile of the region, New Mexican chile gives Southwest cuisine distinct taste.
Hungarian chile is a rare variety of chile that is popular as a garnish, in salads, in dips and in uncooked sauces. These little chiles are most often used in their unripe state when they bright yellow and sweet.
Thai chile is spicy and hot! Because these little chiles have sharp, pointed ends, they are also called “Bird’s Beak” chile. Thai chile is so hot that it is most frequently used to spice up recipes instead of being eaten alone. It’s great for use in many spicy cuisines.
