What the heck is Jamie Oliver's red chili?

smcbride3 | Nov 18, 2009 10:28 AM

Jamie Oliver's newest cookbook is a great read so far but I'm puzzled. He uses a red chili in lots of his recipes (okay, about 75%, some would say overkill) and I would love to know which one he uses. Its the same shape as a jalapeño but skinny and red. And the fact that he uses it quite often (all the freakin' time) leads me to believe that its no too spicy.

I'm not that versed in chilies but I do get to see a pretty good selection at the likes of Verril Farm (in the summertime), Idylwilde and Russos and some of the Stop & Shops in the city.

Can someone shed some light. And this is a link to the chili he's using ...
