Coqui the Chef's Food Tip:


Ají dulce in Puerto Rico, it is known as ají dulce, ajicito or ajíes (sweet pepper and two words for small pepper, respectively, in Spanish) In the Dominican Republic, it is also known as ají gustoso or ají cachucha (tasty pepper, and cap-shaped pepper, respectively, in Spanish) In Cuba it is known as ají cachucha. Ají dulce, which is a fruit, is pungent, most likely due to cross-pollination with habaneros or other spicy peppers.
