  • Peanut butter should not be capitalized, it is not a proper noun. However, Spanish should be capitalized in your question. - amykay Jan 4, 2011 flag

Hola, Kristina.

It really depends on the country. In Mexico it is "crema de cacahuate" (for smooth) and "crema de cacahuate con trozos (for chunky).

I have also seen references to "mantequilla de cacahuete" (notice the difference in spelling for the word "peanut") and "crema / mantequilla de maní".

  • Interesting. Here in the Phils., cacahuate is a totally different plant. In fact, it's a tree. :) - Deanski Jan 4, 2011 flag
