Our fresh red is great for use in sauces, salsas, posole, enchiladas, etc and can even be roasted and put up like you would our fresh green. Red chile is actually just the mature green that we grow here in New Mexico and has a slightly sweeter, smokier flavor that fresh green. Sadly, because it is highly perishable, you can’t really find fresh red chile at supermarkets. That’s where we come in! We only offer Big Jim in fresh red as it holds up better during shipping than other varieties and is more meaty.
Typically, our fresh red is available from mid September through late October. We offer 5, 10, and 25 pound boxes of fresh red, all of which can be shipped 1, 2, or 3-day delivery. We offer ground as a shipping option to addresses that have 3-day delivery guarantees as well. Prices are listed below.
