Jalapeños - The world's most flavorful chiles, constitute one of the most representative ingredients of Mexican cuisine. There are many different types of chiles, but the most popular and most used in Mexican cooking is the Jalapeño. Originally grown in Jalapa, a region in the Mexican state of Veracruz (Golf of Mexico), the popularity of this chile has grown beyond its original boundaries.
The Jalapeño (a chile of the plant family Capsaicum) derives its bite or heat from capsaicun, a potent chemical that survives both the cooking and freezing processes.
Jalapeños can be added to anything to spice it up. The fierceness does not detract from the flavor of food, it enhances its nuances and tastes.
The Jalapeño is conical in shape, tapered at the tip, more rounded than pointed. Average measure 6-8 cm (2-3 inches) in length and 3-5 cm (1-2 inches) in diameter. Intense green color, smooth texture, thick and meaty skin, it is aromatic and has a pleasant green veggie flavor, slightly biting. The seeds and veins retain heat, removing them will make the chile slightly less hot.

La Morena Whole Jalapeno Peppers

I've tried several brands of canned whole jalapenos, and La Morena's, in my opinion, are the best. I like that their ingredients don't include sugar.

The perfect pepper. Whole eaten from the can or used in cooking. Carrots and onions add much to the taste. Mouth watering.

Review for La Morena Whole Jalapeños Peppers

I have been eating La Morena Jalepenos for 30 years. They are not easy to find locally even though I live in TX, but MexGrocer has them. They are very flavorful and have just the right amount of heat. They have been consistent in their taste ever since I ate my first one.

Review for La Morena Whole Jalapeños Peppers

I love these jalapenos, but I really bought the product for the can. I will be using the unique can to hold flowers for decorations at a Mexican rehearsal dinner. Love it!
