Anaheim chiles are New Mexico chiles that migrated to California. I forget the whole story, but a NM guy took come peppers to a friend at Anaheim California way back in the early part of the last century. Hence the name Anaheim. They are very similar but generally milder than the New Mexico varieties such as Big Jim and Sandia.
