Red Chili Pepper
Red chili peppers are vegetables that originated in the Americas and are used primarily in Mexican and South American cuisine, but also in India (known as lal mirchi red).
Red chili peppers are hotter than green chili peppers. They range from an orange shade to dark red. The flavor comes from the skin, the brighter the pepper the hotter it is.
