What is Piri Piri?
Piri piri is a type of chili and hot pepper. It is small with thin red skin and a round, long body with a tapered bottom and green stem at its top. The flesh is thin with hot seeds in its center, which should be removed for a lesser heat intensity. The flavor of piri piri has an herbal tone and is a medium hot pepper that packs a punch. A little bit will flavor an entire dish and is used in African and South American cuisines.
