  • This recipe calls for one habanero pepper. If you think it might be too spicy for you, use half a habanero pepper. Do not omit it as the taste will be drastically different if you do.
  • Better yet, if you have access to scotch bonnet peppers (commonly called ata rodo in Nigeria), you can use that. It will be a lot spicier!
  • Alternatively, you can add an extra tomato or two, to tone down the heat of this beef stew.
