Chile de Agua-(Capsicum annuum)-This a delicious pepper found in the markets of Oaxaca, Mexico. It is becoming more rare because farmers are switching over to more common Guajillo pepper types that bring them more money. This pepper when roasted has an almost butter flavor with an above average Jalapeno heat level. The Chile de Agua peppers are used in mole sauces, salsas and dried into seasoning powders. The local Oaxacan people also stuff it with a pork hash. Another local recipe is they cut it into strips, then saute with onions and epazote in oil. After that they finish the dish by adding some milk and cheese and serve with warm fresh tortillas. The Chile de Agua peppers grow from 3-5 inches long and taper to a point at the end. They ripen from green to red. The Chile de Agua chile plants grow 2-3 feet tall.
