The skin of these peppers is waxy and even crunchy, but completely edible. They have a thick flesh.
Their sweet, hot (similar to jalapenos, but sometimes a little hotter) flavor of these peppers is very popular traditional Latin dishes, soups and salads. They can also be pickled (they make the prettiest pickled peppers!), added to salads and other meals for a bit of crunch, or tossed directly on the grill to be roasted.
