What the fuck does that mean? I have like 4-5 different green chilies at my market. Any britbongs want to clarify for me before I make something bland or burn my tongue off?
>>
>>8457429
I don't know what the Arabs meant but poblano is a good mild green chili with a little heat and serano is good if you want more heat but not overpoweringly hot

i beleive it refers to the kind in the can

>>8457465
Use pablanos tard.
Or literally "chilies."
You can't mistake these for jalapeños or greens when the shit at the grocery store is labelled.
>>
>>8457489
are you kidding?

They are used to add heat, poblanos are weak af

don't tell my bongs think poblanos are spicy, they aint that retarded
>>
>>8457483
yes I am sure many british recipes call for mexican green chiles in a can
>>
>>8457429
>green chilies

usually jalapeno, which range from not spicy to spicy. You can taste them as you cook to determine how much you add.
>>
They're usually birds eye chillies
>>
>>8457507
Gordon doesn't look like he's chopping up jalapenos tho
>>
>>8457507
Worst flavor known to man.
And ghost peppers are delicious to me. Jalapenos have no place in food that you are not scooping up with a chip.
>>
Just taste some and adjust the amount accordingly
>>
>>8457499
considering it's a mexican fruit...
>>
>>8457522
Link the video and we will tell you.
But it's literally just called "chilies." Jalapeño shape, rounded tip, green color and slightly shorter than said pepper.
>>
>>8457520
they look a bit bigger than bird's eyes though
>>
>>8457523

Oh come on. Toothpaste and orange juice is a worse flavor known to man. Jalapenos are just highly variable in heat.
>>
>>8457527
Mexicans don't have such a thing as "green chiles" as there are like 50+ varieties that fit that description

In NM they call hatch chiles green chilies but that is cultural
>>
>>8457533
well off the cuff i can't find one for green but here's one for red which is equally confusing

Other supermarket pack for reference.

Both rate it as 2 for heat ( out of maybe 3?) So mid spiciness. They do look like a kinda jalapeño though. But I dunno why we wouldn't call it that.
>>
>>8457691

Someone with access to a selection toon of sensibly labeled peppers still needs to know what cultivar they are though.
>>
>>8457691
I think you misunderstand, the point is there are many green chilies in other nations and they don't know what to use when given a recipe that calls for "green chile"

yes it's green, yes it's a chile, but that's not the idea
>>
If it's a UK recipe and it doesn't specify any thing specific, I'd go with Cayenne.
>>

because you are autistic about green chili cultivars and lash out at anyone who tries to help you
>>
>>8457870
bell peppers are green

cayenne peppers are green

therefore they are the same :^)

fuck off
>>
>>8457429
Green chilies are literally just unripe chili peppers.

Pick any type depending on how hot you want the recipe to be.
>>
>>8457906
that's really not the point of the thread

"green chile" means something specific in britain
>>
>>8457429
In my market, the green chilies are as follows:
Hot:
jalapeno
serrano
bird chilies, maybe some green or red thai instead
habanero
scotch bonnet

Medium:
poblano

Mild:
bell peppers, baby to large
cubanelle

Dried chilies in the bag: You can usually find california, ancho, guajillo, chipotle, etc

For Indian food (I assume what you are reading from Britain), if it says chilies, hrm, because they usually say capsicum. But, the hint of which to buy is the relative amount they are telling you to use. For a dinner for 4 people? I'd assume 1 serrano would be fine. If it shows you should use 3-4 of something?Milder pepper then.Unless it's asking for scotch bonnet or habaneros which are fruity, any other pepper will be just whatever chili flavor versus searing heat difference matters to your tastebuds. I usually seed peppers because I want to use more chilies for more chili flavor before the seeds make it burn too much.
>>
>>8457557
How about you cool your autism and just buy a fucking can of green chiles. Holy shit, kid.

I can understand being pissed about the unspecific naming. "chili" is like "coffee" or "potato", when you live in a country where people know fuck all about the thing in question it's clear enough among the oblivious. The rest of the world is left dumbfounded.

that implies that the average brit can even tell the difference between the cultivars sold. Let's face it, how realistic is that.
>>
>>8457632
>>8457719
Exactly this. It's green cayenne. In the US, you can find it at some East, South and Southeast Asian green grocers.
If you can't find it, horn peppers (which are surprisingly more common in the US than green cayennes or, at least, they are around New York) are pretty much the same thing, just wrinkled, curved and weird-shaped with slightly thinner skin.
Push comes to shove, Anaheims or even jalapeños would make decent enough replacements.
>>
>>8457916

Yes, it means that we Brits know fuck all about chillies.
>>
>>8457981

Well I'm a Brit and I have 5 different varieties over wintering at the moment and will be adding some new ones next month... So I might.
>>
>>8457483
Serious question. How much difference does it make to use these? I occasionally make a Texas Chili that I've been tweaking, and I've become very happy with it. However, I use these for the green chlies in it, because my grocery store I buy stuff from has an abysmal pepper selection.
>>
>>8458022
For reference, the recipe calls for "5 New Mexican green or red chiles, roasted, stemmed, seeded and chopped"
>>
>>8457970
It's like the traditional Inuit who had fucking 18 names for snow and ice with all the nuances because it meant the difference between starvation and sustenance.
>>
>>8458011
Decent amerifat here who admires elements of British culture. What varieties are you overwintering? We've just started our seeds for tabasco, jalepeno, cayenne, bell, poblano, and scotch bonnet for transplanting outside in late march.
>>
>>8457557
well in Mexico we call it Chile Verde sometimes though. Usually referring to serranos
>>
>>8457691
goddamn, do they label fish, poultry, and crustaceans "White Meat" in Britain, with beef, lamb and pork labeled "Red Meat"?
>>
>>8458113
I'm willing to bet serranos is the closest to what they want
>>
the whole point of chillies is you're supposed to use as much of the kind you like as you want
most British normies would just use the green ones out of the mixed chillies you get at Tesco though
>>
>>8458113
>>8457945
>>8457916

I admit, 'green chili' isn't too helpful. The reason is that most of the time, supermarkets only stock one packaged chili, but the cultivar will change depending on stocking and season. Thus, they label the product 'green chili' or 'red chili' and leave it at that (similarly, they will tend to label eating oranges as just 'oranges')

>>8457703
These chilis are almost certainly green serenade chilis, which are much like a hot serrano chili (closer to cayenne in heat).
>>
>>8458243
Nice hyperbole.

Do they just label food as "subsidized GMO ersatz foodstuff" or "real food" in America?
>>
>>8459594
what about apples? my market has easily 8 or 9 varieties
>>
>>8457691

do you have to be 18 to buy these
>>
>>8459598
How do you miss the point this hard?
>>
>>8459633

That's because we were among the first people to seriously start developing new apple cultivars, I suspect.
>>
>>8459677
who is "we"? I'm American
>>
>>8459680

We, the English, the people I am representing when explaining why we have things just labelled 'green chilis' in our stores. I thought that was self-evident?
>>
>>8457429
I think it means if you are a man use habeneros and if you are a pussy use jalapenos.
>>
>>8457997
>we brits

Ironically that part reveals you are a burger.

You're pathetic.
>>
>>8457429
If you really care about using the "correct" peppers, then why are you using a British recipe? They know nothing of peppers. Just use whichever peppers you like. If you insist on being a sheep then look up a few similar recipes from different chefs or countries and see what they use for peppers.
>>
>>8459761

this. Or just taste the peppers and adjust the amount you're using accordingly based on how hot the peppers are and how hot you want the finished dish to be.
>>
>>8459686
you were responding to "my (american) store has 8 or 9 types of apples" by stating "because we were among the first people to start developing apple cultivars" and confusion arises because it is not clear if you are saying:

>"we (americans) did that which is why you personally have different labels for different apples your american grocer and brits do not follow this convention much in the same way they call all green chilies 'green chilies' because capsicum was diversified in north america as well"

or

>"we (british) did that and so british grocery stores have different labels for different apples as opposed to chilies which we did not develop into different cultivars so we only have one name for them"

Do bongs REALLY do this?

This reads like some sort of dystopia.

"The meat", "the flour", "the orange".

I'm going to pretend that all other strains of peppers and oranges died out in some apocalyptic war.
