Pimientos de Padrón are small, bright green peppers that come from the municipality of Padrón in Galicia, in the northwest part of Spain.
They’re usually mild in flavour, with low levels of capsaicin. Every once in awhile, however, you’ll bite into one that’s surprisingly spicy, making the act of eating them even more exciting.
