Is a Serrano pepper? My recipe calls for one and I bought it. That little pepper looks ferocious though.

serranos are milder than jalapenos. I use them in my salsa.

lol really? I just read that it's 5x hotter than a jalapeno.

Quoting nellyb118:

hmm really?! I love spice but can't handle it so when I got the salsa recipe from my aunt I couldn't handle the jalapenos so I substitutes Serranos and it was so much better & I could actually eat it!

I haven't had one before but my husband said he thinks its about the same as jalapeno...so guess it depends on the person..? Idk.

It's a bit spicier than a jalapeno. When we lived out in CA as a kid my mom has an entire pepper garden. She LOVED spicy stuff. They used to dare the other Marines to go out and eat a pepper off the plants, the serranos are tolerable...the habaneros, not so much lol

It's a bit milder than jalapeno but still sooooo hot. But if I slice it so thin (like 1 mm slices) I can actually eat it. I use serranos almost everyday.

To me its not spicy, I use like 5 or 6 when I make steak or a salsa, but then again my hubby is mexican so I could just be use to it cause I use peppers in everything, even my eggs lol
