Today’s review is going to be of the Chocolate Bhutlah pepper. It has a somewhat pungent aroma and Earthy flavor to it. The flavor is quite pleasant otherwise. Very good used directly with food or as pepper flakes, pepper powder or a sauce. Pizza, a hot pasta, steak, ribs, enchiladas, burritos, tamales, would be excellent uses for a pepper like this. Unless one has had a significant amount of food before consuming a fresh pod, a fresh pod on an empty stomach would probably not work well. My tolerance for spicy stuff is really high, however, I can imagine that consuming a hot pepper pod on an empty stomach would hurt.
