Serranos of different colors aren’t actually different varieties. Rather, they are picked at different stages in the growing process and will all have slightly different flavors. The green peppers are milder serranos in terms of heat compared to other colors of peppers. If you want a pepper that has a more developed, spicier flavor, choose orange or red serranos.
Dried serrano pepper flakes are commonly used in Mexican dishes. They are also commonly eaten raw, roasted, or pickled and are available as a powder. They have rated 20,000 Scoville Heat Units which is hotter than our jalapeño on the Scoville Scale.
Why buy from us?
We especially like Serrano pepper flakes added to fresh salsa, soups, homemade chili, and using it to make a fiery chili oil that can be added to any dish.
Looking for a larger amount?
We offer wholesale discounts on purchases over $500. You can learn about wholesale on our Wholesale Page.
Our flakes are sold by weight as they are a commodity. Since they are pure we do not add fillers so how it looks in the bottle may be different than what is shown in the pictures as the density changes with each crop. FDA-approved plastic bottles are only manufactured to specific sizes (i.e. 8 fl oz, 16 fl oz, 32 fl oz) so changing the bottle size for each crop is not possible to always make it look entirely full for every crop.
