Growing red chiles for cosmetic and pharmaceutical purposes for many years was the beginning of the San Simon Chile Company. Green chiles grown in the San Simon are known for their excellent quality and flavor; and San Simon Chile Company offers fresh roasted green chile in season, as well as frozen and sun dried red chile pods. Red jalapeños are smoked Aztec style and chipotle sauce is available as well as jalapeño relish, and jalapeño jellies; all made from the peppers they grow.
Did you know that chiles contain the hot ingredient capsaicin which contributes to endorphin release in the body and can cause you to want more. Chiles also can increase oxygen, prevent blood clots, heal ulcers, kill food-borne bacteria, prevent cancer cell proliferation in cultures, and relieve pain. Some customers stock up on chiles to take advantage of these properties and cook with the chiles every day.
