FROM ONE OF MY FAVORITE BLOGS QUE RICA VIDA

If you love spicy food, then this recipe is just for you. In Puerto Rico, it’s very common to see street vendors selling fresh produce and bottles of pique (Puerto Rican hot sauce) hung from a string. It’s a beautiful, vivid sight and one of my favorite parts of our long Sunday strolls.The secret of the spicy pique is the amount of ají caballero (Puerto Rican chili pepper) you decide to add. To make it really spicy, make sure to mash them before you put them in the bottle.
