    The Jalapeno Chile is named after the city of Xalapa [Jalapa] in the state of Veracruz in Mexico, and appears in all sorts of Latin cooking, because of its spicy-but-not-too-hot flavor. The use of the Jalapeno chile dates all the way back to the Aztecs.
    On the mild end of the hot pepper spectrum, Jalapeno chiles have 2,500 - 8,000 Scoville heat units. [By point of comparison, Habanero Chiles, at the other end of the spectrum weigh in at a face-melting 100K - 300K Scoville units]. The Jalapeno chile's flavor is akin to a lightly hot bell pepper. The dried Jalapeno chile is a Chipotle Chile.
