Jalapeno pepper is a type of chili pepper commonly used in Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine. It is named after the Mexican city of Xalapa (also spelled Jalapa), which is where it was traditionally cultivated. Jalapenos are usually harvested when they are green, although they can also be left on the vine to mature and turn red.

Jalapenos are small to medium-sized peppers, typically around 2-3 inches in length and 1 inch in diameter. They have a slightly curved shape and a smooth, shiny skin. The flesh of the pepper is thick and crunchy, with a mild to medium heat level. The heat of a jalapeno can vary depending on the individual pepper and the conditions in which it was grown, but on average it is around 2,500 to 8,000 on the Scoville scale, which is a measure of a pepper's spiciness.

Jalapenos can be used in a variety of ways in cooking, such as being sliced and added to sandwiches, nachos, and salads. They can also be roasted, grilled, or stuffed with cheese or meat fillings. Pickled jalapenos are a popular condiment and are often used to add a spicy kick to tacos, burgers, and sandwiches.
