The serrano is one of the most iconic chili peppers. You’ll recognize these peppers because they are typically between one and four inches long and about half an inch wide, shaped like a small torpedo. At first glance, you might think a serrano is a jalapeño, but these peppers are typically smaller. The most common color is green, which can make it even easier to mistake for a jalapeño. However, you can also find these peppers in red, yellow, orange, and brown.
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.
Serrano pepper flakes are commonly used in Mexican dishes. They are also commonly eaten raw, roasted, or pickled. They have rated 20,000 Scoville Heat Units which is hotter than our jalapeño on the Scoville Scale.

Disclaimer: 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.
