kellysals6 monthsWhen a recipe calls for a green chili what kind of pepper is that? I can only find Jalapenos.5 comments,0 shares,2 likestraceyross6 monthsHi @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.andrewsherman6 months....top - I mean tipandrewsherman6 monthsAs @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 Geen6 monthswhere do you live @kellysals ? most supermarkets in the UK sell different types of chillisArthur vdH6 monthsSee if you can find bird’s eye chilli or Thai chilli @kellysals. Jalapeños are not nearly as hot.
