Grown in the Hatch chile-growing region of New Mexico, these New Mexico Green Chile Flakes are a pungent expression of sun and earth. Grassy, sweet, and bold with a vegetal backbone and a steady heat, these flakes are a combination of two New Mexico cultivars—New Mexico 6-4 Heritage and Big Jim—that are cultivated for their flavor and are generally considered the peppers that can best deliver authentic New Mexico flavor to happy consumers.

Our New Mexico Green Chile Flakes come in at 3,000-5,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). It is a milder chile, but the relative mildness doesn’t overwhelm the flavor of the pepper and lets it come through. Once picked, green chiles are left in the sun to dry, which allows their color to stay light and fresh, and their flesh to stay sweet. This process takes about three days. At this point chiles can be left whole, ground into a powder, or crushed for flakes.


Tips From Our Kitchen


New Mexico Green Chile Flakes taste great in cornbread; just mix some in to your favorite cornbread recipe and let the flavors meld in the oven. Serve this cornbread with a bowl of chili for a Southwestern dinner party that’s big on flavor, but won’t knock you out with heat. For dessert, mix New Mexico Green Chile Flakes in with some brownies for sweet and savory chocolate. Pro tip: Make a double batch.

Rich Flavorful Chile taste, no harsh burn These are wonderful flakes for adding a rich Chile flavor to meats and sauces. I add them to pork, beef and chicken. Great for making a paste to cover pork butt before roasting. Make a paste of sufficient quantity to cover a pork but roast. I make 1/2 -3/4 cup for 6-7 pound Boston Butt roast. I use one entire head of garlic, crushed fresh in garlic press. Start with 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, add more if paste is too thick. 1/3 cup of Spices Inc. Green Chile Flakes, one tablespoon fine Himalayan salt. Mix to a paste consistently that will stick on the roast. Wrap the meat in foil and store in fridge for 4 hours. Then roast at 325 deg. F for 30 min/pound.

Not like your ex. These flakes of green magic are a nice, unexpected change up from crushed red. Different from the powder in their effect on a dish. They are hot but not scorching. Not all flakes suck.

Excellent company to do business with. I am thoroughly enjoying the spices that I purchased from Spices, Inc. Great customer service and communication. I am unable to buy chipotle flakes in my area in a brick and mortar store; and I was delighted to see that Spices, Inc. carries this product, in many different quantities to choose from and at very competitive pricing. Other companies that I explored offered the same product at a much higher price. Also, with my purchase of some other spices, I was given a free sample of Pennsylvania Pepper which makes common supermarket black pepper pale by comparison! I have added Pennsylvania Pepper to my wish list when it comes time for me to make another purchase of spices. Thank you Spices, Inc.

Great Chile Flakes and wonderful taste! I use this for a seasoning I make and I could not be happier. My original spice purveyor is gone so I found this on Spices.INC. I am now ordering monthly from them. Great product. I would like the shipping to be a bit faster, but during the time we are living through, I understand.
