Piri Piri is a Portuguese hot pepper originally from Brazil but was brought to Africa by the Portuguese in the 1600's Traditionally the chillies are crushed and combined with bay leaf, garlic, wine vinegar and olive oil. made into a paste and slathered on chicken before being grilled, thus Piri piri chicken, or Frango Piri Piri, in Portuguese, I take dried Piri Piri chillies, bay leaf, garlic powder, whole pepper corns and grind in a small spice grinder into a powder. i can keep a sprinkler jar of this in my cabinet for a long time. All you need to do is add a sprinkle or two to the almonds. Almonds done with the ground Piri Piri chillies are fantastic.snacks and hard to keep around they're so delicious and heart healthy. These peppers can be hot and if you want to tone down the heat, add a bit of smoked paprika! Enjoy these delicious almonds with a glass of chilled Sherry or your favorite wine as they do in Portugal!
