@Trisha Red poblano chiles are typically much hotter than the green unripe ones. Also, every so often you will get a random pepper that is hotter than all the rest!

We have a couple of poblano chili plants and some turned red before we could make chile rellanos. I found out the the red chili is REALLY hotter than the green. Is this normally true or did I get an exceptionally hot chili?
