Whole dried Wiri Wiri Chillies
Wiri Wiri Chili pepper is a rare variety.
The small, inconspicuous chillies from Guyana are tough - with their heat of 100,000 to 350,000 Scoville, they can certainly compete with the Habanero and Scotch Bonnet chili pepper. Their taste is also deliciously distinct: fruity with a spicy tomato undertone.
In French Guyana this chili is a a staple in everyday cuisine and culture. Wiri wiri are used in a delicious extra spicy table sauce (along with mango) common on dining tables across Guyana. They are favorites in hot sauces, stews, soups, savory dishes like Indian curries and marinades, working particularly well with tomatoes and tropical fruits.
The peppers can be crushed coarsely, finely ground or even used completely, e.g. by adding the whole dried chillies to a stew or soup.
