The Story of Don Juan
Don Juan Chiles story begins like so many other family operated businesses—in the kitchen. Initially, burritos were the founder’s, Dinah & Rene Vizcarra Senior’s, primary product. However, the feedback on the burrito’s authentic flavor prompted a change in direction.
As a result, the family has distributed bulk chiles, spices, herbs, and teas since 1991, and created the Don Juan Chiles brand in 2003, named in memory of Rene Senior’s father. Don Juan Chiles’ mission is to provide grocers, restaurants, and local shops quality chilies and spices that enhance each meal while bringing families together.
