Chilli facts


Some say PERi-PERi is like a rollercoaster on the tongue that’s a thrill by mouth and positively addictive. The reason could be that PERi-PERi is believed to cause an endorphin release in the body which creates a sense of euphoria and increased energy. Tasty stuff!

  • The smaller the chilli, the hotter it is likely to be. Our hot little number is the African Bird’s Eye Chilli.
  • A chilli’s heat depends on how much Capsaicin it contains. At Nando’s we use the African Bird’s Eye Chilli which has quite a bite!
  • PERi-PERi pods follow the sun. At Nando’s you’ll find the sunshine warmth of our African heritage in all our sauces.
  • Nando’s PERi-PERi stimulates open nerve endings between tastebuds, creating a heat sensation. It feels so good, it’s addictive!
