Ghost Pepper Salsa…those three words strung together should strike fear into the heart of any chip-dipper contemplating Mrs. Renfro’s super hot salsa. Help support the Chile Pepper Institute by giving some to your favorite chilehead.
The Chile Pepper Institute’s Chile Flavor Wheel is a chilehead chef’s best friend. The wheel is similar to flavor and aroma wheels designed for wine, only for chile peppers instead.
From now through October you can visit the gardens at New Mexico State University’s Fabian Garcia Science Center in Las Cruces. There you’ll see peppers being grown the way the pros do it, and possibly pick up some growing tips to take home!
