Chile Rayado

Chile Rayado by MexFoodJournal

Chile rayado means “striped chile” due to the naturally occurring light-colored ridges. It is a member of the jalapeño family although it is much hotter than a typical jalapeño. The town of La Misión in the state of Hidalgo is the sole region where chiles rayados are grown.
