Green chile peppers are large, mild chiles are available in most local grocery stores. The green chile pepper may also be referred to as the Anaheim pepper, and is related to the New Mexico green chile. You slice them, dice them, peel them, puree them; people who like to cook Mexican dishes find many uses for them. They are commonly roasted.

The green chile pepper rates between 1,000 and 2,000 Scoville units on the heat index.
