Chef Tim Says....
Twenty years ago it was rare to find much more than a green bell pepper in grocery stores. The sweet or bell pepper is a member of the Capsicum family, making them a cousin to chili peppers such as jalapenos and habaneros. Red bell peppers are simply green peppers that have been allowed to ripen on the vine longer and are, consequently, sweeter. Yellow, orange and purple varieties are widely available now as well, each with subtly different flavors.
Poblanos range from very dark green to almost black. They are mildly spicy with a heat index of mild to medium. The darker pepper has a more intense flavor. As poblano peppers mature they turn a reddish brown. Dried poblanos are known as Ancho chilis. Peppers
