FAQs about banana peppers

Banana peppers and pepperoncinis look similar, and they both have a mild, sweet flavor. The skin on pepperoncinis can sometimes be wrinkled, and they have a slightly more bitter taste than banana peppers. Despite these differences, pepperoncinis can serve as a replacement for banana peppers in many situations if you're unable to find a banana pepper.

There are many ways to cook banana peppers, so cooking times vary. For example, if you're stuffing peppers with cheese, steak, or something else, many recipes call for the peppers to be grilled or baked in the oven for about 15 minutes. If you're adding banana pepper as a pizza topping, you'll usually have to cook your pizza for 20 to 25 minutes. When frying peppers as part of a sauce, they require between 5 to 10 minutes to cook through. On the other hand, if you're adding banana peppers to your favorite salsa or salad recipe, you won't need to cook them at all. Raw peppers can also be eaten together with your favorite dip.

The spiciness of chili peppers is measured in Scoville heat units (SHU). Banana peppers are one of the mildest types of pepper on this scale. They typically range from 0 to 500 Scoville heat units. This is similar to pepperoncinis, which range from 100 to 500 SHU. The Anaheim pepper has a bit more kick, ranging from 500 to 1,000 SHU. A spicy alternative is, of course, the famous Jalapeno. The mildest jalapeno starts at 2,500 SHU, with the hottest reaching 8,000 SHU.
