Well, not really. My dad actually calls these babies, “Mexican Strawberries.” Trust me though, because there is nothing sweet about them.
These hot little chile peppers are commonly used as a spice. They’re officially called Pequin (pronunciation: pee/puh-KEEN) . Did mention they were hot? These suckers are 40 times hotter than a jalapeno. The flavor is described as, “citrus-y, smoky (if dried with smoked wood) and nutty. I say, “Bullshit!”
I’m sorry, but if you have wear surgical gloves to pick these damn things, that’s an issue and one that is not even coming near my mouth! That shit is a legal lip remover that will require skin grafts!
So, I’m curious readers: what is the hottest pepper you have ever eaten and were your lips ever recovered?
