Habanero peppers are a variety of chili that originated in the Amazon River region and eventually was domesticated and spread into Mexico, the Caribbean, and other areas. It is a very hot pepper and was once considered the hottest in the world.
Habanero peppers can be eaten raw and removing the seeds gives them a milder taste. They can also be roasted, baked or steamed. Using a bit of their juice or creating a rub also adds their flavor to dishes. The peppers have also been added to chocolate desserts to create interesting flavor combinations.Learn more about Cooking
