Lovers of spicy cuisine, the Pili Pili Chili Pepper often also referred to as the Peri Peri Pepper or the African bird’s eye chili is one of the strongest chili peppers that exist.
Made famous around the world by Nando’s and other Portuguese chicken restaurants. Chicken smothered in delicious Peri Peri Pepper sauce seems to be a match made in heaven. But why stop there? This is the perfect chili to flake over pizza, spice up a curry or to give your Mexican a little kick! Dried Peri Peri is also a fantastic addition to a dry rub or marinade and works well with pork, beef, lamb and even seafood.
Rated 8 out of 10 on the Scoville scale, which defines the strength of chili peppers, the Pili Pili Chili Pepper packs a punch.
When dried, the Pili Pili Chili Pepper can be ground in the Peugeot Ouessant or Oleron mill, which has a mechanism designed specifically for grinding these spices. This is perfect for flaking a little chili on the go and totally at home next to the salt and pepper mills at the dinner table.
