Jalapeño peppers are a variety of chile that originated in Mexico and the southwestern United States. These hot, dark green peppers are named for Jalapa, the capital of the state of Veracruz. Frequently used as a zesty topping for fried tortilla chips with melted cheese (nachos), jalapeños are also used as an ingredient in many sauces. Las Palmas® Whole Jalapeños also can be used to add exciting flavors to pizzas, hamburgers and eggs.
