Using Cheyenne Green

goldenecho(Z8 (Waco TX))November 9, 2011

I've heard that you can use Cheyenne Peppers when they are still green, and they won't be as hot. This sounds good to me as I like the flavor of cheyenne, but could do without the heat. Does anyone have any recipes or suggestions for using green cheyenne peppers? I have a few growing in my garden now.

Also, how much less hot are the green pepersthen the red Cheyenne? (Compared to other, would be be similar to a bell, poblano, jalapeno?) Do they retain much flavor green, or do they loose their flavor with their heat?

(NOTE: Actually in Waco though it says I'm in Dallas)

Try one.

The flavor will be different (because they are green..not ripe) as well as not being as hot. I would still imagine them being fairly hot, but, taste "green".

Well, I guess I'll give it a try. Maybe I'll have my husband try it (I planted them for him...he's more heat tolerant than me).

Salsa verde (green sauce) with chiles is as common as salsa rojo (red sauce) in Mejico. Taste is different, but, that is the point.
