Mild or Hot?  Green jalapenos tend to be milder, while their Red or Orange siblings are usually hotter.  To make jalapenos their mildest, remove the seeds and membrane.  The membrane is a thin, blistered layer slightly lighter than the rest of the pepper. 

It's a good idea if you are sensitive to jalapenos, to wear gloves while you prepare this dish and don't touch your face or eyes until you've washed your hands with soap and water.
