hot chiles
what is it?

Chile peppers are members of the genus Capsicum. They contain varying levels of the substance capsaicin, which accounts for different levels of heat. Many fresh chiles are available in their green (unripe) as well as red or orange (fully ripe) forms; some chiles are only consumed as unripe or ripe.
