Chil Pepper: Habanero

Cooking Term


Chili Pepper Habanero: Perhaps, the Mexicans or the Spanish clergy named this chili pepper after the Cuban city of Havana, however, it is an indigenious Mayan chili pepper, shaped like a lantern. It has a fruity, flowery yet piquant heat that puncuates dishes in the Yucatán and abroad.
