"The aroma is a stew of different pepper characteristics, sweet peppers, poblanos, even green bell peppers. The palate is a mess. The peppers are all at each other’s throats arguing who should be the center of attention. As you taste, the sweet and spicy flavors continue to amplify as if they’re in a shouting match. Perhaps tomato juice could put them in separate corners."
