Just trying to help people correctly pronounce the name of the beloved jalapeño pepper. Growing up in New Mexico since the 70s, everyone around me said - Hallah Pain Yo which was wrong enough already.
So, it was like a record scratch the first time I heard someone say Hallah Peeno. I think it was a cooking show in the early 2000s. Recently, I learned from a Spanish tutorial that it's really pronounced - Hallah Pen Yo.
I thought this Holbein engraving in the background was the perfect representation of a New Mexican explaining the importance of the situation. 😂
