Sweet chili is a small type of green pepper that turns orange and then red if left in the bush for a long time. The sweet pepper has the shape and size of the habanero pepper, but without its characteristic spicy flavor. This type of pepper with a sweet and marked flavor is used to add flavor to all types of stews, especially the known sofritos. The majority of sweet pepper is imported from Latin America where it is an essential seasoning to add to meals, especially in Venezuela, where it is part of their culinary identity. Its cultivation is very common in the eastern part of Venezuela and it is very difficult to find outside of Latin America. In addition to being delicious and providing a special flavor to meals, sweet pepper also provides countless health benefits as it contains large amounts of vitamins A and C in addition to magnesium and potassium.
