Anaheim Chilis

500-2,500 Scoville units

Although these medium-sized green peppers could be mistaken for jalapeños, they're actually far milder, measuring only 500 to 2,500 units on the Scoville scale, a measure of chili pepper pungency. They grow to be about six inches long and are sold fresh, canned, and dried. Also known as New Mexico chilis and green chilis, they are used in Mexican and Southwestern egg dishes, vegetable courses, and stews.
