This BEAUTY of a chile is particularly well-suited to the growing conditions in Pueblo, Colorado. You’ll hear or see the Mira Sol referred to as “The Pueblo Chile.”
The Miracle of The Mira Sol — this chile is . . .
- Unique in that it grows upward – “looking toward the sun” in Spanish.
- Delicious with tones that are distinct from New Mexico chiles because of Pueblo’s cool nights and fresh Rocky Mountain water via the Arkansas river
- A delightful heat. At 2,500 – 5,000 Scoville units, the Mira Sol ranges in heat between an Anaheim and a jalapeño.
Experiment in cooking with this chile! Mira Sol makes a superb chile verde stew and incomparable salsas!
The hot pepper jelly we make with Mira Sol includes superb complements of lime and cilantro notes.
