    Ingredients

    Japones chiles.

    Japones Chiles are popular in Chinese and Japanese cuisine despite originating in Mexico. In fact, "japones" is the Spanish word for "Japanese." The Asian cultures favor these peppers for their lack of complexity and use them for heat while combining them with other ingredients to create their own flavor profile. With a high concentration of capsaicin, these peppers are closely related to piri piri, malagueta, thai and tabasco peppers. It is one of the main spices in Szechuan and Hunan cuisines.

    While they are most popular in these areas now, they have their origins in South America and Mexico and were introduced to Asian cultures through Spanish and Portuguese traders in the 15th century.

    A member of the capsicum family, Japones Chiles are not only full of heat, but have long been regarded for healing abilities and health boosting properties. Ancient cultures have used the pepper to help with cardiovascular ailments, pain management and digestive issues.
