FAQs about jalapeno peppers
Although serrano peppers look similar to jalapenos, serranos are usually smaller and thinner. Both peppers have a medium heat level on the Scoville scale, but serranos are hotter than jalapenos. Both have similar flavors, so if you can't find jalapenos, a serrano will make a good substitute in most recipes as long as you consider the extra heat.
To cut a jalapeno, start by washing it under cold water. Use a small, sharp knife to cut it in half lengthwise, and then if you want to remove some of the heat, shake out the seeds. Use the knife's point to scrape out the placenta along with the pith and ribs on the side of the pepper. You can then slice or chop.
Keep in mind, that like other hot peppers, jalapenos will sting your skin and eyes. Ensure you don't touch any sensitive area after touching a jalapeno, and thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water after handling. You can wear gloves when preparing jalapenos to help avoid getting the capsaicin chemical on your skin. Just make sure to turn them inside out when you remove them.
