Native to remote mountainous areas, at the base of the Citlaltepetl or “Pico de Orizaba”, the second most prominent volcanic peak in the world, the Comapeño pepper remains one of Mexico’s hidden culinary jewels.
A few hours from Mexico City’s bustling metropolis lay the mountains of tropical Veracruz.
Within them, deep inside the lush “Bosque de Niebla” (Cloud Forest), lives one of Mexico’s best kept secrets “El Chile Comapeño”.
Comapeño peppers have a truly amazing combination of flavor and heat. When you fry them, they have a nutty and earthy favor with notes of coffee and popcorn! If what you are looking for is also to add some heat to your meal and stimulate your taste buds, Comapeño peppers will also do the trick without overdoing it!
But not to worry, if heat is what you are looking for, just add more and you will get what you are looking for… trust us!
