It was one of my childhood favorites. I absolutely loved reading when I was a kid (still do) and I read Five Little Peppers and How They Grew several times. This post isn't about a book though, it's about all different types of peppers with a few recipes thrown in for fun!
If you're anything like me, you buy bell peppers and maybe jalapenos and that's about where your "pepper knowledge" ends. I'm all about experimenting with new ingredients though and apparently there are a few other peppers in the world.
A couple of years ago The Nest listed out six different types of peppers from "Hot" to "Mild"
(Use in salsa and fruit based sauces)
(Great for spicing up chili con carne)
(Yummy with Cajun and Indian dishes)
(Best on nachos, especially if pickled)
(Used to make chiles rellenos (stuffed chiles)
(Perfect for mole sauces)
Peppers are such an easy way to add flavor to foods without adding calories. Here are some recipes!
