Recipes that ask for Green and Red Chilies: What kind of chilies are they talking about!?

ThaiYouUpLongTime | Jan 5, 201508:10 PM     13

I have a thai cookbook and it says several times throughout the cookbook to use green chilies (for a green curry) or it will ask for red chilies (in red curries or other recipes).

What chilies are they talking about? When I go to my local farmer's market they have fresh green peppers but none that are labeled "Green chilies". They have Pablano, Serrano, Jalapeno, Hot Long Finger Peppers ( all of these are green colored chilies).

I made a recipe for a green curry and I used "Pablano" chilies for the "green chilies" it was asking for. I know Pablanos are mild for peppers, I'm not sure if that's what the recipe wanted since it was implying that the dish would be hot. I've always been confused about this but didn't remember to ask anyone.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
