Jalapeño peppers can spice up almost any dish. This variety of hot pepper is generally harvested and sold when it is a glossy dark green, but it turns red as it matures. Jalapeños are just one of many types of chili peppers that are often used as an accent or garnish to add heat to a dish. Although they are usually eaten in quantities too small to provide a significant amount of nutrition, these peppers are a good source of vitamins A and C.

Protein

These hot peppers are not a good source of protein, with less than a gram of protein in a full cup of sliced jalapeños.

Vitamins and Minerals

Although most people don’t eat enough jalapeño peppers to make a significant dent in their nutritional needs, just one pepper contains about 16 milligrams of vitamin C, about 18% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA). This vitamin is important to many essential functions, including wound healing and immune function, and must be acquired through diet.4

Jalapeños are a good source of vitamin A, which supports skin and eye health. In 1/4 cup sliced jalapeño peppers, you’ll get about 8% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin A for men and 12% for women. Jalapeños are also a good source of vitamin B6, vitamin K, and vitamin E.

Health Benefits 

Many health benefits have been attributed to capsaicin (the substance that puts the “hot” in hot peppers), including alleviating pain and itching by inhibiting a key neuropeptide that transmits signals to the brain.5

Relieves Pain

Research shows that capsaicin (typically supplements or topical preparations) can relieve nerve and joint pain.
