Damn I was going to say Serranos, but usually they are found fresh. (At least around here.)

Look for canned Anaheim chiles, normally found canned by Ortega, others maybe found where you are. those are the ones found on Carls Jrs Southwest Sandwiches. Maybe on the Hardees sandwiches. Not too spicy and usually nice flavor too. Anchos or Poblanos are good if you can find them

As a rule of thumb, the larger they get the milder they get. HOWEVER that's not to say you don't find the occasional Ancho or Anaheim that blows your eyes out.

Yeah, Poblanos are excellent.

Get some corn flakes-the brand doesn't matter.

Put them on a plate, single layer, and spray them with Pam
or other cooking spray.
Sprinkle cayenne (red) pepper on them.
Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.

Instead of staying crisp, they get soft and can be used exactly like
fresh peppers on your pizza. You can experiment, but cayenne reacts well with the corn flakes to give a "fresh from the garden"
flavor. If you are really picky, you can color the corn flakes first with
food coloring.

You are welcome.

Try some Mancini cherry peppers. They have some pretty good red jalapenos too.

You are going to have to come up with a rating scale for this question. Most folks around here consider jalapenos to be mild.

I was going to throw in serranos as well but I think what he considers mild is considerably weaker.

See if you can find some New Mexican Green Chile. They are great on pizza and burgers.

Habaneros taste like shit if you aren't adjusted to the acidic content. When you get a resistance to it, I assure you Habaneros taste excellent.

By the way, if you want to try the hottest pepper in the world, it's now a side breed of Habanero called Carribean Red. Again, they'll burn the average Joe's ass off, but they taste excellent when you get over the spice. I started off eating a quarter of a Habanero over one meal. Now I eat at least one Carribean Red for every helping.

Go to the grocery store and buy yourself some "cowhorn" peppers. It's a type of red pepper that's a little on the warm side without being to hot to eat. They also taste pretty good too and they go GREAT on pizzas. I grew some in my garden last summer and, during growing season, they have a deep, dark, green appearence but when they mature they will turn cherry red in color. They average between 4 to 8" long when mature. Again, they're a little warm but they won't turn your mouth into a 3 alarm fire. Along with their warmth they are also fairly sweet, as well. I would compare their "sweetness" to what you might taste in a green bell pepper. As far as their "hotness" is concerned I would liken cowhorns to be slightly less hot than a typical jalepeno.
