Pronounced “suh rah noh” these workhorse chiles are a member of the species Capsicum annuum.Most of us are more familiar with this slender jalapeno looking chile in its fresh form where it is easily found in many local supermarkets. The Serrano, when growing, is green and then ripens to deep scarlet red in color, but they can also occasionally mature to orange, yellow or brown in color. When green, the Serrano is sometimes referred to as chili verde.


History and Cultivation
Native to the Mexican states of Hidalgo and Puebla, these chiles are named after this area’s mountainous region. Serrano translates to “from the mountains”.


When and Where to Use
Ground Serrano is most commonly used in salsas and authentic Mexican sauces. In the states, it is sometimes used as a substitute for the more popular Chipotle Chile powder. For a delightful twist and we like to use it in recipes that call for ground cayenne; which is great for heat, but lacks the Ground Serrano's flavor profile.

Dried Serrano powder works very well in a sweet and spicy salsa when combined with mango and pineapple.


Flavor and Heat
This smoked chile pepper packs a bit of punch and is considered a medium hot chile coming in at 8,000 - 18,000 SHU.

It has a smoky, fruity flavor with citrus undertones.


Helpful Hints

We also carry a full selection of dried chile powders with some of our favorites being such Ancho Powder
, Chipotle "Morita" Powder, New Mexico Chili Powder and Pasilla Chili Powder as well as a growing selection if dried chiles.

I use it in pizza crust. (Just a little). It is also great in making Lentil Soup. What a great idea to powder Serrano Peppers.

Careful, a little goes a long way with this spice. It's very fresh and aromatic, and definitely has that initial heat bite of a serrano.

Wow! What a little powerhouse! A little goes a long way, adding full flavor to dishes with a nice background heat. I leave this on my table for my daily fix. This also goes very well with Chipotle salt!
