Red Fresno Chile
The Red Fresno chile is a medium-sized chile offering a hot flavor similar to or slightly hotter than that of a Jalapeño. The Red Fresno Chile is easily mistaken for the red Jalapeño, but can be identified by its typically wider shape. When cooked, Fresno chiles bring out a smoky sweetness that is not found in its raw form. On the Scoville Scale it ranges between 2,500 and 10,000 units in heat level.
