So, what is pimiento de piquillo?

Pimiento de piquillo, or "piquillo pepper" in English, is a small, sweet red pepper variety originating from the Navarra region of Spain. Its name comes from its distinctive beak-like shape, as "piquillo" means "little beak" in Spanish. These peppers are typically hand-picked when fully ripe, then roasted, peeled, and packed by hand, giving them a tender, smoky flavor and a soft, velvety texture. They are a popular ingredient in Spanish cuisine, often used to add depth and richness to sauces, stews, and rice dishes. With their vibrant color and unique flavor, pimientos de piquillo are a favorite of foodies and chefs alike.
