Guatemala has very creative names for their chilies. For instance, diente de perro, dog’s tooth, and diente de caballo, horse’s tooth, come to mind. The chilies in the picture above I believe are diente de perro, although I have heard some people call it chile de huerta, orchard’s chili. These chilies grow in our garden/orchard and are among the hottest I have ever tried.

What other Guatemalan chili names do you know? Also, do you know what make Guatemalans so hot?
