Adobo from Chile

This dish is shortly called «sili» and we can’t but mention that it is made, like all other variants of Filipino adobos, with the addition of vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper and bay leaf. But this time the main role is played by chili peppers. This is definitely an appetizer for those who love the hot dishes.

Although you can choose not quite spicy chili peppers!

List of required products:

  • 500 g of green not very hot chili peppers;
  • 10-12 cloves of garlic;
  • 120 ml of vinegar from sugar cane or black rice;

  • 2 tbsp. of vegetable oil;
  • 1-2 tsp. dark brown sugar;

By the way

If you want to make the dish less spicy, gently pull the stem from the chili pepper, turning it around its axis, slightly pressing inwards. Remove all seeds from the peppers with a long spoon. If you do not like spicy dishes at all, then you can cook ordinary sweet peppers according to this recipe — just choose very small ones to cook them in the whole.
