Be weary-weary of the wiri wiri. Reaching high from the branch they look like the heads of fiery little imps keeping tabs on potential prey (that’s you). They dare you to wrangle them in hot sauces or tomato sauces.

They’re not quite as hot as a habanero, have a fruity-chai-teriyaki scent, and the flavor spicy and sharp. The wiri-wiri is a complicated specimen and doesn’t like to be boxed in. This particular chile has roots in South American and Caribbean cuisines, particularly in hot sauces throughout Guyana.

For a flavorful, even impish hot sauce take a cup of wiri wiri chiles and rehydrate them in ¼ cup of white vinegar. Take the vinegar, chiles, a chopped white onion, a few cloves of garlic, a small thumb of ginger, some honey, a hefty spoonful of your favorite mustard, and pinch of salt and pop them into a food processor and blitz into a rough paste. Serve on bánh mì, over grilled steaks, over mashed potatoes, or toss with a bit of olive oil for a unique salad dressing.
