Recipe: Hot rice salad
Chili Pepper Files
August 27, 2008
I received Peruvian Collnew seeds from a friend, but I didn't find anything about this pepper on Internet.
It's a Capsicum Annuum, and it ripe from green to orange. The pods are hot, crisp and flavoury.
You can use Hot Lemon pepper instead of Peruvian Collnew, they're similar in piquancy and flavour.
Hot rice salad
4 Peruvian Collnew chilies or 6 Hot Lemon chilies (or more if you like it hot!)
100g chicken breast
1 red sweet pepper
150g canned corn
250g cooked or canned cannellini beans (or white beans)
150ml whole yogurt
Cook the rice in boiling water and drain it well.
Meanwhile cut the chicken breast into stripes. Put in a frying pan with oil and cook for a few minutes.
Put the rice in a salad bowl with chichen, red pepper cut into slices, corn and beans.
Prepare a sauce combining yogurt, chives and minced pepper.
Refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.
Peruvian Collnew (Capsicum Annuum)
Wall thickness: Medium
Plant productivity: Prolific
Number of seeds per pod: Enough
Pod lenght: 6 - 7 cm
Plant height: 70 cm
Colour: From pale green to bright orange.
Why grow it?:
Peruvian Collnew chilies are tasty, but also with a strange, crinkled shape. The plant can be grow as an ornamental chili.
The plant is so prolific that I freeze many Peruvian Collnew pods, cut into slices. They can also be dried.
