While green Serrano peppers are the most common, Melissa's Fiesta Serrano Peppers are much more fun to look at! Plus, they bring festivity to the plate. Not only are these peppers aesthetically pleasing, but they also offer more flavor! When left to ripen in the fields longer, the familiar green Serrano turns into brilliant shades of orange, yellow and red and develops a delicious subtle sweetness. Serrano peppers of any color are meaty in texture, making these a preferred go-to salsa ingredient. Known as one of the hottest varieties of peppers, with a Scoville rating of 10,000 to 25,000, people also love to use this pepper in guacamole or pickle with carrots and onions to make a delicious escabeche.
When buying fresh peppers, choose firm, heavy, smooth-skinned ones that are dry (free of moisture). To store Serrano peppers, wrap in a paper towel and store in the refrigerator's crisper section for two to three weeks.
