kellysalsabout 1 yearWhen a recipe calls for a green chili what kind of pepper is that? I can only find Jalapenos.5 comments,0 shares,2 likestraceyrossabout 1 yearHi @kellysals I’ve found the long green chillies that are sold at my local Indian grocery store the best. The short green chillis are too hot so avoid them. I could not find anything suitable in my grocery store other than jalapeños or Mexican peppers. I am based in the USA.andrewshermanabout 1 year....top - I mean tipandrewshermanabout 1 yearAs @Arthur vdH says, jalepenos just don’t give a real heat. I’ve used many supermarket ‘green chillis’, some aren’t hot and others blow your head off 😂. Try and taste the normal green chillis first before you use them, remember the hottest part is at the stalk and coolest at the top 👍Sue Geenabout 1 yearwhere do you live @kellysals ? most supermarkets in the UK sell different types of chillisArthur vdHabout 1 yearSee if you can find bird’s eye chilli or Thai chilli @kellysals. Jalapeños are not nearly as hot.
