Jalapeños are the mildest of our Don Chilio chilies. But remember: “mild” is in the palate of the taster, so start with a little dab and then decide how much to use! Their flavor is reminiscent of green bell peppers, with more heat than sweet. Use them to add assertiveness to tacos, nachos, salsa, chili and salad dressings; and then free your mind be adventurous! They’re delicious in casseroles, egg dishes, and stir fries—and even beverages! Pop one on top of your fresh-lime margarita for the ultimate sweet/sour/salty/hot experience.
A little hotter than a Jalapeño, not as hot as a Habanero. Serrano chilies are at the center of our line for a reason. They have a meaty texture and a bold kick that’s perfect in dishes like Firecracker Shrimp, Creamy Coconut Curry, and Spicy Relishes. A little dot of Don Chilio’s Crisped Serrano’s puts the Devil in a Deviled Egg.
Habanero Chilies are famously hot, and ours are no exception-definitely the fieriest flavor in our line of Don Chilio Crisped Chilies! While maintaining a hint of floral sweetness in that flame, a little goes a long way to create deliciously attention-getting salsas, sauces, and soups. But go ahead and think outside of the jar! They can be surprisingly good in sweet foods too-add a tiny dab to butter cookie dough, an 1/8 teaspoon to marmalade, or grind a pinch into powdered cocoa for a whole new experience in hot chocolate—yum!
