Yellow Wax Chile Pepper - Glossary Term

view glossary term online:
A variety of yellow chile peppers typically harvested when they are 4 to 6 inches in length. Often mistaken for the banana chile, the Yellow Wax pepper has a hotter flavor and is larger in size. Also known as a Hungarian Wax pepper or chile, this pepper may have a hot flavor, but it generally ranges from mildly hot to hot. Served fresh in salads and salsas, or as a pickled appetizer, the Yellow Wax variety of pepper is also a good pepper to stuff with various ingredients. A similar stuffed food dish known as Chiles Rellenos, uses a milder pepper such as an Anaheim but if a more robust flavor is desired, the Yellow Wax chile pepper works well. Yellow Wax peppers keep well in the refrigerator, wrapped in paper, for a week or so.
