Green Serrano Chile Powder
Serene and green, but hiding an unexpected thorniness.
Serrano chiles are one of the most widely recognized chile peppers. Due to being sold young and green in supermarkets many home cooks have made the serrano a regular staple for chilies, sauces, pico de gallo, and for straight-up pickling. Their fresh, bell-pepper flavor and medium heat make them easy to maneuver into many recipes.
The green ground form of serranos is unique to chile peppers, which are often dried and aged before they are ground into powder. This powder is often used as a finishing spice. Add to soups or eggs right before serving. In addition, it’s a popular garnish for roasted or boiled winter squash.
