PepperSmack Serrano Pepper Dust is ground from the freshest and finest variety of serrano chilies. The serrano originates from the mountains of Mexico and is known for its mildly hot, pungent flavor, much similar to a green bell pepper. Serrano peppers are one of the most used chili peppers in Mexican cuisine. Rich and potentially blistering (though sometimes fairly mild), serranos show up most often in salsas, marinades, sauces and chilis. It registers up to 25,000 Scoville heat units. Serranos, dehydrated and ground into fine dust, are a great and easy way to have serrano peppers that last a lot longer than if you left them whole and tried to use them up all at once. In dry dust form, they can then be used in soup, stews, salsas, as a rub, or sprinkled on food, when you want a little kick added to your dish. Like other peppers, the serrano packs a nutritional punch, with notable amounts two very important vitamins, vitamin C and A, and other notable health benefits. Our dusts are contained in a spice jar with sifter.
