The jalapeño is an unripe green chili that is picked and dried to preserve its flavor and color – unlike other chilis, the jalapeño has a characteristic tangy, “green” flavor, somewhat less sweet than others, with a bracing pungent heat that enhances flavors and aromas of other spices and ingredients. The jalapeño is used heavily throughout Mexican and American cuisines for its bright flavor, pleasant moderate heat, and its ability to complement vegetables, seafood, and meat equally well. Substitute for cayenne in a recipe for a distinctly tangy, lively variation in flavor.
