    super to pick up some peppers, it's a little discouraging.  I've just about given up on jalapenos altogether, and mostly use serranos now.  But they, too, are being dumbed down.  

    It's gotten to the point where you almost have to use a mix of jalapenos, serranos and thai reds to get some heat and flavor.

    That's not hard if you live in Portland, or any other good sized city...but I'm sure there are towns where the local super in the hinterlands may have only one of those chiles in the produce section.
