Anaheim (pronounced AN-uh-hym) Peppers are among the most popular and commonly available chiles in the United States. Closely related to a red variety (commonly known as New Mexico Chile or Chile Colorado), the Anaheim is pale to medium green in color with a long, narrow shape. Named after the Southern California city where it was originally grown, Anaheim Peppers are favored because of their sweet and mild flavor.

Anaheims are found in a broad range of Latin dishes and are commonly used in salsas, as well as roasted and stuffed to make the well known favorite Chile Rellenos.

Melissa’s Anaheim Peppers are hand-selected for excellent quality. Choose bright green, glossy peppers that are firm with a medium to thick flesh. Avoid soft spots. Refrigerate, unwashed in a plastic bag for up to 5 days.
