The jalapeño pepper constitutes 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. 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.
