African Bird Pepper Ground



African Bird Pepper, also known as Capsicum Annum, is a hot chili that grows wild in parts of northwest Africa. With a scorching 90,000 Scoville heat units, African Bird Pepper can awaken many dishes including soups, casseroles, chowders, and curried dishes.

Add a heaping spoonful of African Bird Pepper to corned beef hash, beans, or rice for a fiery endorphin rush. Since it is flavorful, it can also be used as a substitute for Cayenne Pepper when seasoning sausage, pot roast, poultry, and barbecued meats as well as a vast number of dishes of the Portuguese cuisine.

This pepper contains carotene molecules that have potent antioxidant elements. African Bird Pepper, and more specifically Cayenne, has been successfully used to treat arthritis, psoriasis, cluster headaches, and amputation pain as well as lower the rate of cardiovascular disease.


Use in place of cayenne, on rice dishes or to spice up corn beef hash, eggs or as a pepper replacement.
