A chili pepper refers to nearly any pepper that is spicy. They get eaten mostly in hot places, where local populations have developed an appreciation for them. Introducing this food to any Arctic region would result in immediate societal distress.
Chili pepper can easily dominate the flavor of any food, which isn’t a definitively positive or negative trait. It’s a fun food because it offers eaters an “extreme” flavor experience that may result in temporary discomfort, but spares them from any kind of permanent damage (other than possibly psychological). It’s common to let chili pepper lie in the sun until it gets really dry.
