Jalapeno vs. Serrano Peppers
Updated: Jan 19, 2019
Serranos are in the same pepper family as jalapeños. They are supposed to be up to 20 times hotter but I haven't experienced that. Jalapeños "hit" quickly and serranos hit later, so I typically use both for a nice longer lasting flavor profile. Not too hot - just right. I add peppers to add flavor, not to burn anyone's face off.
