Excellent combination of sweet pepper taste, warm chilli flavour and bright colour.
Use in dipping salsas of all sorts, spicy Italian meatballs and stir frys. Dial up the heat by slicing across the chilli and include the seeds. Alternatively, slice down the chilli and remove the seeds for less heat.
In general the chillies in these packs are Fresno or Seranade varieties, which have a rating of 2,500 to 8,000 on the Scoville Heat Scale for Chilli Peppers, to put this into context the hottest chilli is at 15,000,000 and a Jalapeño would be 2,500.

Very, very, very mild
Barely any perceptible heat. Tastes like a bell pepper. Little point in buying, since these probably much more expensive by the gram than bell peppers, too. Hard to tell now that Ocado have a policy of not giving cost/weight for much of their veg.
I ordered a large quantity of these chillis to make a sauce. Some packets contained up to 5 chillis whilst some only 2 (despite all packets claiming to be 60g). Some inconsistency in heat level, the batch I bought were huge spicy. Also - too much plastic!
HOT HOT HOT
Second time buying theses, first ones perfect the last order blew my head off. On the packaging it appears as Chillies says nothing of MILD perhaps they sold me the wrong ones or I was unlucky.
Once these are cooked in a dish, even with all their seeds, there remains no heat whatsoever.
TOO MUCH PLASTIC
Stopped buying these as too much packaging for a couple of chillies - time to change Ocado!!
These were mild as described with 3 peppers in the pack. They were fine for their intended purpose (making salsa), but Id probably try a different pepper next time
