Are Jalapenos Spicier When Red?
Yes! Peppers are usually more spicy when they’re red. The longer you let them sit on the vine, the more they mature. Also, look for striations. The more viney-looking striations, the more spicy the pepper.
How Do You Make Poppers More Spicy?
When you make filled or stuffed jalapenos, you usually remove the seeds and membranes. This makes room for the delicious filling!
Since most of the spicy heat lives in the seeds, you need to add your own heat, if you want them more spicy.
Go ahead and add some Valentina or Tabasco sauce. Sprinkle the filling with chipotle or cayenne powder.
Be sure and taste the jalapeno before you add extra sauce, though! All chile peppers have a range of heat and you may get yourself into a fiery battle.
Have a look at my Scoville Heat Scale for more information on the heat of different peppers.
How Do You Remove Jalapeno Seeds?
I have tried everything from knives to spoons. These work, but the best thing I’ve ever found is a Norpro Jalapeno Pepper Corer.
Try out this Norpro Grip-EZ Jalapeno Pepper Corer (aff link). It’s the one we use and worked perfectly for removing the membranes from these jalapenos. It would work in removing the insides from the top of a whole jalapeno too!
