How to prepare petina peppers?

mY NEIGHBOR BROUGHT M3 SOME PATINA PEPPPER SEEDS and has made me afraid to eat them. They are supposed to be very hot. Any input? Anyone?

Sorry, never heard of them. I know pasilla and poblano but not patina or petina.

I agree with Andy - you or your neighbor must have the real name of these peppers incorrect. There's no such thing.

Are you talking about eating the seeds? Or about planting the seeds and ultimately eating the peppers?

If you are growing them, I would do it and then compare what you've grown with pictures of hot peppers to find out really what kind you have. Here's some samples:
Hot Peppers

The "heat" from peppers is most in the seeds and membrane, so many recipes remove these to reduce the torture substantially. :)
Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.
