From Mexico. If you’re ready… these Chiltepin beauties are favorites with hot pepper enthusiasts who cook with them, or just pop them in their mouths. They are among the smallest, hottest peppers but after they zing you, their heat calms down quickly. The unique, smoky flavor is quite tasty but it’s definitely a different eating experience. You might know them by other names too:  bird pepper, bird’s eye peppers, chiltepe, or just tepin.
