Peppers are actually one of the first domesticated plants. Chili peppers are better for you than oranges.
Everyone goes on about how oranges are a big boost in vitamin C and a great way to get over a cold… but perhaps we should all be throwing jalapeños into our juices instead. Chili peppers actually have almost double the amount of vitamin C in them compared to oranges – it’s around 107mg vs 69mg.
Where is chili popular in the US? Among the top cities was San Antonio, Texas, the city credited with first popularizing chili in the 1890s. By the 1920s, cookbook recipes for chili called for beans; by the 1940s, tomatoes were a common ingredient.
