Removal of the ribs and seeds will remove most of the heat from the hananero. However, if you are one that is a chile novice, this is probably not the place to start. The fruitiness of the hananeros and the tartness of the vinegar, lime and mustard provides a unique balance to go with your fajitas or street tacos.
