Piquillos are a unique little pepper that's typically found in Northern Spain, where it's popular in the cuisine of the region. The pepper, however, can be grown anywhere the weather is suitable, and sunny Peru is where these come from. The peppers are roasted slowly over embers (as opposed to a flame fire) and they develop a delicate and sweet smoky flavor, with a mild spiciness (they're not hot at all). Hand peeled, their seeds removed, you'll find piquillo peppers often stuffed with delicious mixtures and served as "tapas" or appetizers. 10-15 peppers per can.
