Let's spice things up a bit...
Meet Mr. Felipe Choco of San Pedro Columbia, Toledo District, Belize.
A proud Maya Q'eqchi' of Southern Belize making roast ground pepper. Perfect accompaniment to Lancha, fish wrapped in Obel (Cowfoot leaf) with its spicy and licorice notes or also in Waha (wild plantain leaf).
This smokey spicy pepper, similar to cayenne, is also perfect in traditional Caldo, stews, tamales and broths
