Serrano peppers are hot chilli peppers named for the mountain ridges in Mexico where they originated. Immensely popular in Mexican and Southeast Asian cuisine, they are considerably spicier than the jalapeño variety. With a fiery heat and sharp flavour, they can be eaten raw, chopped, pureed, in sauces, chili oils and dips, pickled, or cooked. Serrano chiles have a flavor similar to hot version of a jalapeño pepper, with a bright, fresh-tasting spice. The level of heat for serranos often depends on their size (smaller often means hotter), colour (unripe, green peppers tend to be milder). Warning: Please remove the seeds before cooking for a less intense experience, wear kitchen goggles and rubber gloves to avoid burns.
Health: Serrano peppers contain vitamin C and potassium and also supply copper and manganese. Add these peppers to your diet and you also consume some calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, selenium, folate, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin E, and choline.
