I bought some Arrivivi Gusano pepper plants this year and I got a huge crop (bought from the Chile Woman and boy did I get my money’s worth), but I have no clue as to what to cook or make from them. I could make some hot sauces, etc. (the usual) but I am looking for specific recipes for foods that use these peppers native to Peru. I have come up with zilch on the web…ideas, thoughts, comments? These babies are HOT and tasty.
