The heat level is entirely up to you. I suggest adding less peppers then you can customize the heat by adding in some of the pepper’s seeds until it reaches your desired heat level. Only use serrano peppers if you know you love fiery heat! It is hard to subtract heat but it is easy to add, so when in doubt, use less.
The above is a generalized calculation as even the same type of pepper can vary significantly in heat. As you can see by the serrano vs. jalapeno Scoville Heat Units, each jalapeno pepper can rangy anywhere from 2,500 – 8,000 SHU and a serrano pepper can vary between 10,000 – 23,000 SHU. On average, however, serrano peppers are 3 times hotter than jalapeno peppers.
