Serrano Peppers - Chiles Serranos
Serrano Peppers are believed to have originated in the mountainous regions of the Mexican states Hidalgo and Puebla. Serrano the name of the pepper is a reference to the mountains (sierras) of Hidalgo and Puebla. Serranos are the traditional Mexican Hot pepper and they are hotter than the jalapeno and their taste is crisp, bright, and biting. They are typically eaten raw when they are green, cooked, toasted or fried. If eaten raw, it gets chopped and mixed with other ingredients to make different salsas like pico de gallo, salsa verde and guacamole. If used cooked, serranos are used to make salsas like salsa ranchera. If you don’t have Serranos, they can be substituted with jalapenos.
