The little chili pepper, packs a punch, so not for the beginner spice-a teer. This recipe makes good use of these pretty little peppers. You can use the pepper of your choice, but for this recipe , I used the little black Hungarian ones, and the firey red hot chili peppers. To calm the beast down , I added a good helping of tomatillos from the garden , and a sweet red pepper .
Fresh herbs are something I cannot live without. It is not only used for cooking in the kitchen, but each of these herbs have their own wonderful smell, and that my friends is called Aromatherapy. Guaranteed to keep you in good Karma for the day. I used the oregano , and thyme in this recipe
