Originating from the small village of Chimayo in New Mexico, this hot pepper has an earthier and smokier flavor than other New Mexican chilies like the Hatch pepper. It has a Scoville Heat Rating between 4,000 and 6,000 SHU, putting it in the same range as a jalapeño, although it is usually milder than the spiciest jalapeño. Makes a great perennial addition to any vegetable garden.
