Fresh Hatch Green Chile

Is Hatch Chile Hotter Than a Jalapeño?

Hatch Green Chile and jalapenos have different heat levels, with the heat of a pepper typically measured in Scoville Heat Units (SHU).

Jalapeno peppers generally range from 2,500 to 8,000 SHU. On the other hand, the heat of Hatch chiles can vary significantly depending on the specific variety. Some types of Hatch Chile can be quite mild, ranging from around 1,000 SHU, while others can be fairly hot, reaching up to 8,000 SHU or more.

So, in terms of heat, some Hatch Chile is milder than a jalapeno, while others are just as hot, or even hotter. It all depends on the specific variety of Hatch chile you're dealing with.
