Jalapeno peppers are the most common "hot" pepper.  Jalapenos are usually green but will ripen to red.  They are a mid size pepper usually elongated and 2-4 inches in length. We carry Jalapeno powder and flakes. The jalapenos are picked at perfect ripeness, dried and then ground to a fine powder. Jalapeno flakes are from dried jalapeno peppers and are a bigger, chunkier size, similar to dried chile peppers commonly found in Italian restaurants.
