Their name means ‰Û÷from Xalapa‰۪, since this town in Veracruz, Mexico is where the jalapeno is traditionally cultivated. Jalapenos have been used in Mexico since the time of the Aztecs, who smoked-dried them creating chipotles and used them in mole, a spicy chocolate sauce. Today, jalapenos are cultivated around the world and on a massive scale to meet the global demand for this deliciously hot pepper.
Jalapenos boast a range of health benefits and can even be used to help aid seasonal allergies and sinus congestion, by clearing the nose of mucus. They are a good source of vitamins A and C, with more concentrations of the vitamins when fully ripe and red. Jalapenos are higher in vitamin E, vitamin K and vitamin B6 than other peppers. The capsaicin in the peppers is thought to be an anti-inflammatory and helps increase blood flow. Jalapenos may also be helpful in weight loss, particularly in the belly area, as they increase the body‰۪s energy expenditure after eating them.
