Serrano Pepper

Serrano Pepper

Serrano peppers are significantly hotter than a jalapeno pepper but not as hot as a habanero pepper.

You can use these green or let them ripen and use them when they are red.  I find the red ones have a more fruity flavor.  I use them when they are green or red.

I don’t see them red/fully ripe in the stores often so I grow my own and let as many ripes as I want.

Great to heat up some salsa like my Tri Pepper Salsa

You can make a really great hot sauce with the red serrano peppers by fermenting them. I’ll post my process to ferment and create a hot sauce in the future.
