The Anaheim chilli is one old time classic that has a versatility in cooking that is unrivaled. It’s a mild, medium sized chilli growing to 15-20cms long and 3-4cms long. Americans can’t get enough of them and they are one of the most common chilli’s used in many foods and recipes. This is no wonder given that the Anaheim chilli is named after the California city of Anaheim. Raw Anaheim chillies are bright, succulent and have a great peppery flavour. When cooked they take on a whole new depth of rich, sweet tanginess. If you’re still not convinced this is one for you just imagine…biting into a Relleno which is when the pepper is roasted, stuffed with gooey cheese and then coated in egg and fried. Mmmm Mmmm. Anaheim chillies are said to pair well with cheeses, pork, poultry, corn, tomatoes, eggs, black beans, and spices such as cumin and corriander. Well we think they go well with just about anything really. They seem to like the cooler weather and when they get going they are great producers.
