Anaheim Hot Pepper
Anaheim pepper is a mild to medium-hot chili pepper that is commonly used in Southwestern and Mexican cuisine. It has a slightly sweet and smoky flavor with a crisp texture. Anaheim peppers are a good source of vitamin C and other beneficial plant compounds. They are often used in dishes such as chiles rellenos, salsas, and soups. When selecting Anaheim peppers, look for ones that are firm, smooth, and free from blemishes or soft spots. Store Anaheim peppers in the refrigerator for up to a week. To prepare Anaheim peppers, remove the stem, seeds, and membranes, and then roast, grill, or sauté the pepper until the skin is charred and blistered. The charred skin can then be peeled off before using the pepper in your recipe.
