What is Peri Peri?

Peri-Peri (also spelled Piri-Piri) is both the name of a bright red Portuguese sauce, as well as the eponymous African Bird’s Eye chili pepper that the condiment is named after.

Legend has it that the Piri-Piri chilies arrived in Portugal via the Portuguese who cultivated them in the colonized South African territories. The Piri-Piri chilies found their way into a sauce developed by the Portuguese which has now become a staple in Portugal.

I honestly do not know the real story… Who developed the sauce and where did the chilis come from? I’m not sure. All I know is that the sauce is REALLY AWESOME and REALLY SPICY.

Peri-Peri chiles are quite spicy, with a typical range of between 50,000-125,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHUs). For reference, jalapeño peppers are about 3,500 SHUs. Like I said, these little chiles are fiery, and the sauce they are used in shares the same spicy characteristics.
