CERTIFIED PUEBLO CHILE Pueblo chile is the most famous chile of our region, attracting chile aficionados’ attention from around the world. Pueblo chiles are comparable to moderate jalapeño peppers, and are usually a little warmer than cayenne peppers. The growing conditions in Southeastern Colorado render some of the best chile available. Rocky Mountain Water and Colorado sunshine yield some of the hottest and most flavorful chilies. The Pueblo Chile Growers Association is a group of Farmers here in Pueblo, Colorado that grow the authentic Pueblo Chile! LOOK FOR THE CERTIFIED PUEBLO CHILE LOGO FOR AUTHENTIC PUEBLO CHILE
