Recipe: Hot beans casserole

Soups with spices and aromatic herbs
July 25, 2008

If you want to keep your chili peppers variety pure, you need to isolate them. Otherwise the next year they may look different from the original plant.
I haven't chili plants from pure seeds, but my plants are quite similar to the original, except for the Mushroom Yellow.

Mushroom HybridAs its name suggests, these chili peppers should be yellow and should resemble a mushroom. As you can see, my pods are completely different.
We named this Mushroom Hybrid chili Hot Jim because it remembers Big Jim, but it's hotter.

We really enjoyed this surprise. These chilies taste like bell pepper, are fleshy, flavoury and hot.

Cook 10 minutes over low heat. Add the sweet potato cut into small cubes, drain and rinsed beans and corn.
Pour the red wine and let evaporate, then cook 10 minutes.

Quei peperoncini assomigliano moltissimo ai guajillos messicani, che però si usano prevalentemente essicati.
