Jalapeño Chile Pepper
One of the most popular chiles due to its hot and spicy flavor as well as the ease of removing the spicy seeds. Jalapenos are harvested when they are green or red if allowed to ripen for a longer period of time. Available fresh or canned, Jalapenos are popular as a pickled pepper as well as a smoked and dried chile pepper, at which point they are known as chipotle chiles. Jalapenos can be served in hot dips, salsas, barbecue sauces or as an appetizer such as deep fried, cheese-stuffed "poppers".
