Colombia gets its name from the explorer Christopher Columbus, who brought the first varieties of hot chillis back to Europe. Colombia benefits from the very fertile Amazon basin; it is one of the richest natural reserves in the world and the home region of hot chilli peppers. This is how this strong chilli got its name from the legendary river of the region: the Amazon. The Amazon chilli is fruity with a subtle acidity similar to Tabasco chillis. These two chillis are part of the same “Capsicum Frutescens” species. The Amazon chilli has a distinctive pale yellow colour as it is harvested just before being fully ripe. A careful drying process preserves this colour together with all its organoleptic properties. The Amazon chilli is very strong, reaching 50,000 to 70,000 SHU* or Scoville units (*SHU: Scoville Heat Unit). Use this Amazon chilli to enliven sauces and soups, or for spicing up stews, meat dishes and dips. It is important to note that this chilli releases its punch during the cooking process. The longer you cook it the spicier your dish will be. So, add it at the beginning or closer to the end depending on how hot you want your dish. Recipe idea: Chili con carne Ingredients: 50g butter, 2 onions, 2 cloves garlic, 500g minced beef, 1 Amazon chilli, 2 teaspoons cumin, 65g tomato concentrate, 1 large tin kidney beans strained, 30cl beef stock, salt, pepper, parsley. Method: - Preheat the oven to 180°C (thermostat 6). - Chop the onion and the garlic. - In a casserole dish, melt the butter then gently fry the onion and the garlic. - Add the minced beef and leave to cook over a low heat for 10 mins. - Mix the finely chopped Amazon chilli, the cumin, the tomato concentrate, and add to the beef.
