So, what is čili?

Čili, also known as chili or chilli, is a spicy ingredient commonly used in various cuisines worldwide. It is a small, elongated fruit with a fiery flavor that ranges from mild to extremely hot. The heat of čili is due to the presence of capsaicin, which stimulates the pain receptors in the mouth and creates a sensation of burning. This ingredient is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, iron, and potassium. Whether used fresh, dried, or ground into a powder, čili adds a vibrant kick of heat and flavor to dishes such as chili con carne, salsa, curries, and more.
