Description:

The Serrano [seh-RRAH-noh] Chile is a hot savory Chile that is also known as “chile seco”. Small, thin, about 1 1/2" long and slightly pointed, this chile is known for its hot, clean flavor with notes of citrus. As it matures, the Serrano turns to a scarlet red or yellowish-orange color. Thin skinned, they don’t need to be steamed or peeled before using. The Dried Serrano is primarily used in sauces but is well received in salsas, stir-fry, and guacamole and with seafood. Popular in Asian dishes the Serrano blends well with cilantro, garlic, lime, mint, and onion.
