spanish word of the day
i am a little confused by the spanish word of the day yesterday spanish word aji verde translation green pepper should this be pimiento verde
jalapeño is pronounced halapinyo.... right'? YAAAA,, rightttt.. mwahhhaha
thanks a lot its the way we are learning in manchester uk
I'm going out on a limb here, but I read a long time ago that when Columbus came to the new world and tasted chile, it was hot like pepper, so he called it pepper. Everywhere I've traveled in Mexico it is called chile. Chile poblano, chile jalapeño, chile habanero. Around here it is most always anglos who call it pepper. And it is a great health food. The average jalapeño has more vitamin C than an orange. And I LIKE 'em!!!
yes it must be regional as was under the impression it was a chilli
thanks a lot
thanks a lot i am learning spanish in manchester and got confused as i was told that aji was a chilli
I saw that too & was wondering if they were synonymous
Some say it's a green chile, others, a green pepper, so I think it's a regional thing. Meaning different things to different people, either a hot or sweet pepper depending on where you come from..
I think aji are the kind of peppers that look like tiny paprika and pimiento are any colour pepper corns
