This is probably the closest thing I have to a signature dish, so I am always experimenting with new ingredients in an attempt to make the meal uniquely mine.
I knew this pepper was really hot and I wasn’t sure how much to add.
I cut the pepper in half and tasted a small piece. As you would expect, the habanero was extremely hot. My mouth was burning for at least five minutes. Wiping my eyes before I washed my hands didn’t help either.
I have a low tolerance for really hot food, so I added only 1/4 of the pepper. For most people, half a pepper would be perfect, but I have no desire to feel the burn.
– Don’t underestimate the heat of a habanero chili.
– Habanero is often misspelled as habañero.
