We would like to assure you that we do not use chile from California. We have had the same chile supplier since we started our company. We recently had our nutrition information reevaluated and the company that reevaluated it put Anaheim green chile in the ingredient statement. The Anaheim is actually the main name of green chile and then there is the New Mexico underneath that. Underneath that there are different types like the Sandia, Arizona19, Big Jim, etc. So all green chile is actually under the Anaheim category. Below is a link to an article with more information about it. Again, we do not get our chile from California and we have not changed our recipe. You can read more about the different types of green chiles in this article: http://www.fieryfoodscentral.com/2010/09/30/glossary-of-chile-pepper-terms.
