History of Jalapeño Peppers
The earliest known record of the jalapeño pepper comes from the Aztecs, who cultivated the pepper in what is now Mexico. The Aztecs used jalapeños as currency, as well as for medicinal and religious purposes. When the Spanish conquistadors arrived in Mexico in the 16th century, they discovered the jalapeño and brought it back to Europe, where it quickly became a popular ingredient in Spanish cuisine.
Jalapeños made their way to the United States in the 19th century, when Mexican immigrants began moving north in search of work. The pepper found a home in Texas, where it quickly became a staple of Tex-Mex cuisine. In 1928, C.M. Cooper patented the first commercially grown jalapeño plant in Texas. Since then, the popularity of the jalapeño has only continued to grow, and today it is one of the most popular chili peppers in the world.
