AJI CACHUCHA (DULCE) Pepper

Aji Cachucha is a small mild pepper used in many traditional Caribbean dishes. It is also sometimes known as an Ajicito or sweet pepper. They are native to Latin America and the Caribbean and is also known as Aji Dulce. The pepper may be confused with the similar looking Scotch Bonnet and habanero pepper but is not as hot. This pepper is typically used as a seasoning pepper in rice and bean dishes, soups and stews and can be stuffed with small amounts of meats and cheeses. The Aji Cachucha has a round shape looking almost like a bonnet or toy top. This pepper is typically 1,000-5,000 (SHU) Scoville Heat Units.
