Red hot chilli peppers

In case you didn't know . . . . the cayenne pepper - also known as the Guinea spice, Cow Horn Pepper, aleva or bird pepper or, especially in its powdered form, red pepper - is a hot, red chilli pepper used to flavour dishes and for medicinal purposes. Named for the city of Cayenne in French Guiana, it is a cultivar of Capsicum annuum related to bell peppers, jalapeños, and others. My entry for Three Muses hot hot hot challenge.

I love this very different take on HOT!! I have to admit that I admire the look of red and green chilli peppers but I am never brave enough to try them!!
Great artwork! Thanks so much for joining in the challenge this week.
