No More Jalapenos? No Problemo! Salmonella-Free Alternatives : No More Jalapenos? No Problemo, yes Poblano!

With the recent announcement made by the FDA regarding further instances of Salmonella poisoning linked to a jalapeno pepper in Texas, restaurants and foodies alike are scrounging for spicy alternatives. However, those sweating it out over the jalapeno crisis do not have to sacrifice the heat! Steffen Weck, Sr. Managing Consultant at Food Business Resource reveals some fiery competition.

LENEXA, Kan. (Business Wire EON) July 31, 2008 -- "With a Scoville heat rating of more than 3500 units, poblano peppers come pretty close to being a 1 to 1 alternative. On the other hand, half as many serrano peppers can deliver the same punch as their cooler cousin." The Scoville Scale was developed nearly 100 years ago, and is commonly used to compare the relative spiciness of different types of peppers.

Try swapping a poblano for the usual jalapeno in salsas, marinades and salads. "Just about any recipe that calls for jalapenos can be substituted with poblanos," Weck continues. Because a recall will not ensure the removal of all Salmonella-laden jalapenos currently contaminating the nation's food supply, the FDA recommends that consumers avoid all raw jalapenos until further notice to prevent salmonella poisoning. "Until jalapenos are safely available to consumers, there are plenty of ways to keep the heat in their favorite recipes," says Weck.
