FAQs about serrano peppers

These two peppers are often mistaken for each other, mainly because they look similar, especially if you find serranos that are still green in color. They're grown in different regions of Mexico, as the jalapeno originated in Jalapa. The serrano pepper is usually 1 to 2 inches in length, while the jalapeno is a little longer at 2 to 3 inches in length.

The main difference between the two is the heat level. Serrano peppers reach between 10,000 to 25,000 Scoville heat units, which measures the unit of spiciness or heat in a chile, while jalapeno peppers measure 2,500 to 10,000 Scoville units. If you're eating a dish that involves raw peppers or a large number of them, jalapenos are probably your best bet. For a spicy salsa dish, you should use serranos.

Like all chile peppers, serranos keep best when left unwashed and dry. Put them in a plastic bag, and store them in your refrigerator for up to two weeks. Make sure you wash them before use. You can also freeze these peppers. Slice or dice them, and place them in a single row on a baking sheet. Place them in the freezer until they're frozen, and then place them in a freezer-safe zip-top plastic bag. Use the frozen peppers within three months.
