That said, if jalapeños are too spicy for you, there are alternatives that work just as well with less heat. You can opt for pickled banana peppers or pepperoncini instead. In both cases, their heat is only a mild simmer compared to that of a jalapeño (topping out at 500 Scoville heat units compared to 2,500 to 8,000 SHU). Plus, all three are common options in the jarred aisles of most well-stocked supermarkets. All are pretty easy to source.
