Piripirisås is a classic chili sauce from Portugal, made from Malagueta chili which is a small green chili fruit (4 cm) that gets an intense red color when it is ripe. Piripiris sauce is often used in Portugal as a table spice or as a marinade for grilled chicken / lamb racks. The piripiris sauce is perfect when you want a background heat in its cooking, as in pots, sauces, marinades, dressings or drip sauce on your pizza, hamburger or kebab. Malagueta chili has 60,000 – 100,000 on Scoville scale (medium)
