Fruity Carolina Reaper Pork Chops

This fruity Carolina Reaper pork chops recipe is a beautiful combination of the fiery intensity of the hottest chili in the world combined with sweet raisons, freshly harvested organic tomatoes and fragrant spices.  

This Curry with has been based on West African influences and is perfected with the use of a little Carolina Reaper Chili flakes. At the moment of publishing this recipe the Carolina Reaper chili is not only rated the hottest chili in the world, due to its fruitiness it as well one of the tastiest chilis to be used in the kitchen.

 However when cooking with the Carolina Reaper it is absolutely vital to use it only in very small amounts in order to avoid making the food to spicy. Knowing that the tolerance for spicy food is different for every individual I suggest to use not more than 1/8 to 1/4 of a teaspoon of Carolina Reaper chili for a dish that is prepared for 4 people. It is always better to add more chili at a later stage should you feel that the finished dish is not spicy enough.
