In keeping with the theme from last week, which was about tacos and all the yummy spices that go into making tacos so unforgettably good, I decided to highlight one of the ingredients that creates heat in food. Im talking about flavor heat from chiles.
Chiles are available in many varieties, from an array of vibrant colors, sizes, to range of pungency heat. Colors vary from light green to dark green, red to dark-purplish brown, and yellow to bright orange, and grow as small as ╝ of an inch to as long as 12 inches. Chiles also come in a number offorms: fresh, pickled, smoked, dried, roasted, and ground.
