Two recipes made with the fiery Scotch Bonnet, including Jamaican Jerk Chicken and Coconut Potato Mash.

Scotch Bonnet chili peppers have a powerful heat, but the heat is truly tamed with traditional Jamaican Jerk Chicken, leaving you with the expected, wonderful flavor of the chili pepper.

I have a couple recipes here using the Scotch Bonnet, including a traditional Jamaican Jerk Chicken but also infusing a quick potato mash with coconut and Scotch Bonnets. It’s a fun combination.
