Question of the Day: Are piquilo peppers the same as pimentos?
Quick Answer: Pimentoes and piquillo peppers are related, as are most peppers, but they are not the same. The biggest difference is that piquillos are much hotter than pimentos. They are closer to the heat of a mild poblano than the mild taste of a pimento pepper.
