Bell Peppers are one of the most recognizable staples in Latin American cuisine and come in various colors including red, yellow, orange and green. The colors are based on their ripeness and they become more sweet as they mature. Green bell peppers for example are unripe and have the most bitter flavor among Bell Peppers. Unlike their spicy family members, Bell Peppers do not contain capsaicin but have a similar flavor profile without the heat.
Depending on where you live, Bell Peppers can also be called sweet peppers or capsicums. They are part of the nightshade family and are very high in vitamin C and other antioxidants.
