A WORK IN PROGRESS –STAY TUNED
EXPLORE THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF CHILES AND HOT CUISINE
To all who have loyaly supported Peppahead over the years, a big THANK YOU. Peppahead has always been about the love of peppers and flavorful sensations. Here to delight cooks and chile pepper fans alike. The "Hot Links" section will steer you to a wide range of resources for chile peppers, cultivation and ethnic/gourmet foods. Eventually I plan to post a recipe index to source my recipes and others. The popular "Chile Peppers" Calendar has been retired and the CHILE STORE has closed, but Peppahead is here to help you source the Regional Chile Powders once sold here, with the exception of my rubs and special blends. Go to "CHILE SOURCES'.
Inside will be the Chile Art Section including galleries of some Chile Photos, Hot Sauce Label designs and Chile Peppers cover art from 23 years. T-Shirts, and Chilehead Gifts will still be available at CafePress. Any interest in these items can emailed for special orders directly from Peppahead.

LET’S GET IT STRAIGHT ABOUT "CHILES"
I see so many recipes in books, articles and online, referring to the ingredient “chili powder”. With many recipes this can cause a lot of confusion. If you added “chili powder” from the grocery spice shelf to an Asian or Indian recipe, you could destroy what might have been a delicious meal.
• The term “chile” (New World Spanish) refers to the plant or the fruit from the plant and its product, such as “chile powder” or “chile flakes”.
• The sauce made of chiles? – is "chile sauce", "chile colorado", "chile verde", "chile rojo" etc.
• In the US, the the term “chili”, generally refers to a culinary dish consisting of meat and/or beans, onions, tomatoes and seasoned with “chili powder”, which is a basic blend of chiles, paprika, cumin, oregano and salt). So be a smart buyer while chili/chile shopping.
Here and outside of the South and North Americas, it appears that anything goes: (chilie, chilli, chillie........). Whatever works for them. Since "chiles" originated in the New World, then I prefer to default with CHILE.
