There are a lot of people who are feeling a bit confused by the fact the green chiles and jalapenos seem to be the same. The question is, are they actually the same? Green chiles can refer to different types of peppers.

It should be remembered that there are different pepper types that are available and the moment that the color is green, then they can already be referred to as such. The jalapeno is a specific type of pepper and it is known for being hot. Those who love spicy food though may think that this is a bit milder as compared to other hotter peppers. If you would see canned “green peppers,” expect that they are going to be milder than jalapenos.

A jalapeno and green chili are not the same thing.

You cannot make jalapenos into green chili.

• Green chili is served roasted and peeled, whole or diced, and in numerous sauces.

• The most frequent uses are often served diced or in specially prepared sauces, and it is helpful to have on hand when creating specific dishes that call for it.

• This food includes enchiladas, burritos, burgers, French fries, or rice.

• The jalapeno is a middle-sized chili pepper pod type of the Capsicum species.

• A ripe jalapeno chili ends up 5 to 10 centimeters long and hangs down with a round, solid, smooth flesh.

• Jalapenos come in two different flavors, as they come from two other plants.

• Jalapenos are excessively hot and often served with nachos, while green chile is hot, but not as hot.

A lot of people assume that jalapenos and green chili are the same, probably because of how they look like. There are a lot of chili fans that feel that the green chili is more similar to Anaheim, which is also a type of chili.

Jalapenos are known to pack a lot of heat, which explains why there are some people who would remove the seeds of the jalapenos when they are using it for cooking food. There are also some people who may use chilis as a condiment rather than something that can be eaten on its own. The heat that you will receive from jalapenos and green chilis are a bit different.

There are two categories of peppers: spicy and sweet. Jalapenos and green chilis are both in spicy category, meaning they are botanically the same. This is where the similarities end. Green chilis are referred to as "Anaheim" peppers and are less spicy than the Jalapeno and are used to make green chili and canned chilies. Jalapeno peppers are known to be spicy and used in small quantities to add heat.

To give you an idea of the difference in spicy flavor, Jalapenos are rated a 5 out of 10 in heat, where green chilies rank around 2 or 3. Typically, Anaheim peppers are roasted before use and jalapenos are diced or minced and used fresh. Jalapeno peppers are also popular to be pickled.
