I like Jalapenos because I find that if I seed and devein them, the flavor it adds is awesome and it isnt a mouth burning spicy.
We like it both, hot & not, one just needs to have it available to be picked depending on dish & mood.
I never even heard of Pasillas and Anaheims, but the more variety the better, there is still enough space in our little herb garden. A fine selection of chili & peppers is what we are after.
