Most of the others we call by their 'names' eg chillis, Scotch bonnets, banana etc. The bog standard green/red/yellow peppers are just that: peppers!

Green chiles, I hate that term in a recipe. It confuses the heck out of me for the reasons stated above.

Generally (like almost universally) green/red/yellow pepper without any qualifying name (japaleno, ancho, scotch bonnet, etc), is the basic capsicum (bell pepper).

BUT that is their name, unless you add Hatch green chile to it. Or NM green chiles.

If the recipe calls for green peppers, it means the blocky, sweet green peppers. If you give them long enough on the plant, they will turn into red peppers. The beautiful, big red, orange and yellow peppers that you find in the produce sections are hybrids of the original green pepper. There is a difference in taste...once they ripen they are sweeter. Some people here do call them bell peppers...some even call them mango peppers.
If the recipe wants hot peppers, it will say so.

Well, I'm glad we were able to clear THAT up. And in just two pages, too.

Hey, you need to set your posts to show 40 per page - in that case it "cleared it up" in less than 1/2 a page for me! But even with the 40 posts per page it takes forever to figure out how to boil or peel an egg!

l guess you can pick through all the conversation and figure out that if a recipe calls for green pepper they mean sweet green peppers or bell peppers.

I'm a pepper, he's a pepper, she's a pepper, we're a pepper. Wouldn't you like to be a pepper, too?
