Start off with one of America's favorite pepper, the mild jalapeno. They are not the spiciest peppers and relative to the other spices we carry they are on the very low end. Pepper spiciness or pungency is gauged on the Scoville Scale. Jalapeno peppers typically have a Scoville Heat Units (SHU) rating of 2500 to 8,500 SHU. While they are not the spiciest peppers, they make up for it with their flavor. What is especially great about jalapeno peppers is that they are mild enough that they can be enjoyed whole without all the pain you will experience if you eat hotter peppers.
Next move up the Scoville Scale with our Hatch Green Chile Pepper. Hatch peppers can range on the Scoville Scale from 1000 to 8000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). However, some can be much hotter. Hatch green chiles are named after the Hatch Valley region in New Mexico where they’re grown. Since Hatch is sometimes known as the Chile Capital of the World or the Napa Valley of green chiles, you know that any hot pepper that comes from this area has to be good!
Finally at the upper end of the Scoville Scale in this particular box is our Serrano Pepper Flakes. Serrano peppers are commonly used in Mexican dishes. They are also commonly eaten raw, roasted, or pickled. They have rated 20,000 Scoville Heat Units. We especially like Serrano pepper flakes added to Huevos Rancheros, salsa verde, wings, guacamole, pad thai, and more.
