The Chile-Tepin Pepper

Our namesake is the chile-tepin pepper. As the only wild chile native to the U.S., the chile-tepin is very small in size and has an extremely pungent flavor with a distinctive, smoky bite. It is rated very hot, 8-9 on a scale of 10. At Chile-Tepin we use this beautiful little wild-harvested pepper in many of our sauces and dishes.

Hand Crafted Food

We prepare classic dishes of Mexico from family recipes handed down for generations, using the freshest ingredients sourced locally and from specialty farms.

Our popular dishes include the molcajete, parillada, moles and combinaciones.
