  4. Pour the mixture into clean and sterilized glass jars, filling them up to 1 to 2 centimeters from the edge. Fill with sunflower oil or olive oil and cover.
  5. Consume the green chili paste within up to a year, as an accompaniment to various meals and sandwiches.

Benefits of consuming chili

Spicy foods stimulate the release of endorphins, small proteins produced in the brain that cause a general sense of well-being.

Laboratory experiments have shown that the active components of chili accelerate metabolism, causing our body to burn more energy and fats.

Did you know?

The burning sensation in the mouth caused by chili is triggered by a chemical compound called capsaicin, which, upon contact with saliva, binds to taste bud receptors called TRPV1, causing irritation.
