African Bird’s Eye Chilis, also known as piri piri chilis, or ata wewe (in Yoruba) are tiny smoked dried chili peppers that aside from the heat offer a light, yet herbaceous flavor. Similar in flavor to the tabasco pepper, these chilis are used to add heat to a variety of dishes in a much less overwhelming way than hotter chili varieties.
