    ZWT8 All Players Cookbook ~ Spain/Portugal


    Bienvenidos!
    Welcome to the Pick-A-Pepper Challenge


    Is it a pepper, a chile pepper, a chile, a chili....or what?

    Selecting only the freshest local ingredients is one of the hallmarks of Spanish cuisine. And incorporating fresh chile peppers in many of Spain’s well-known regional dishes is just one way that sets Spanish cuisine apart from other world cuisines.

    Depending on regional variations, a pepper might also be referred to as a chile, chili, or even a chilli pepper. For this challenge, we will use all those terms interchangeably; so a pepper is a chili is a chile pepper.


    Christopher Columbus first brought the chile to Spain and called them 'peppers' because of their spicy hot taste that was unlike any other food he had encountered. It wasn't long before peppers seemed to be a cooking mainstay in most European areas (and beyond), and cooking with fresh chile peppers has since become a common ingredient found in many traditional Spanish recipes.


    In 1912, American pharmacist Wilbur Scoville devised a method of rating chile peppers based on their level of spicy heat (or piquance), called the Scoville Scale, that rates peppers by their specific Scoville Heat Units (SHU). The SHU is a measure of how much chili extract must be diluted in sugar syrup before its heat becomes undetectable. The higher the number, the hotter the pepper.

    But if “heat” is not exactly what you’re looking for, don’t despair. Because there are plenty of mild chile peppers that are still packed with plenty of flavor and zing. It’s all in what you’re hoping to achieve with the dish you’re making.

    And this is by no means a complete list of all known peppers. It's just a guide to show the variation in some of the most common chile peppers in various world cuisines, and to give you an idea where your favorite chile peppers lie within the Scoville Scale.




    For the Pick-A-Pepper challenge, we would like you to select a Spanish recipe from the All-Players Spain/Portugal Cookbook [ZWT8 All Players Cookbook ~ Spain/Portugal] to make and review that includes a chile or pepper in the ingredient list. Peppers in ground form used as herbs or spices (such as ground paprika, chili powder, fresh ground pepper, etc.) do not count. Also, peppers that are listed as an optional ingredient or are used as a garnish do not count.

    Go MILD or WILD ~ make them HOT or NOT ….. It’s your choice!

    Please remember to:
    ~ Post your Recipe Selection in this thread (Include your team name and team banner)
    ~ Prepare the recipe and post your review and photos (if any were taken) as usual to the recipe.
    ~ Post your completion in this thread. (Include your team name and team banner)

    Buzy would like to make her teammates recipe Arroz con Pollo (Baked Chicken and Rice) #60320!

    I do have a question- my garden has chocolate bell peppers ready now, can I sub that for the green bell pepper in the recipe? Or should I buy a green pepper?

    For the Lively Lemon Lovelies, I'll do this challenge and make Arroz Con Calabacin (Rice With Zucchini) #370748, it has a dried sweet red pepper in it ..... oh no, hang on, does that qualify? If not, I'll choose another recipe, but I'm still doing the challenge

    Buenos Dias, Buzymomof3. You picked a yummy recipe to make, and substituting a chocolate bell peppers for a green bell pepper is OK.

    Hola, Karen Elizabeth. I will include your name for your team as another participant for this challenge.

    Any whole chile pepper, whether they're fresh or dried, can be used for this challenge. So the chile pepper in Arroz Con Calabacin (Rice With Zucchini) is acceptable. The peppers that would not be acpeptable for this challenge are when the dried chile peppers are ground into a spice. Enjoy!

    Hola, gailanng. Welcome to the Pick-A-Pepper challenge. However, the recipe you chose will not qualify for this challenge. The only pepper-related ingredient is peppercorns though which are classified as a fruit (a berry, in the Piperaceae family of flowering vines). This challenge features whole chile peppers (in fresh or dried form) like those that are primarily in the capsicum family.

    I will keep your name on the list for your team, but will have to ask that you select another recipe.
