Tradition of the Chili Pepper
The chili pepper is a southwestern American tradition symbolizing warmth and friendship. Clusters of vibrantly colored chili peppers, called chili ristras, add a zesty flair to home décor. When hung near the door, chili peppers ensure a bountiful harvest; when placed in the kitchen, they bring good luck in cooking. Chilies are a spicy addition to many cuisines worldwide.
