Remember plontomeros?

Turns out Harlem Hispanics are not alone in their quest to come up with the awesomest translations for non-Hispanic vegetables.

The turn is now for green –and red– Bell Pepper, which have become Chile Campana, because “pimiento” is a boring word and my people are just the best of the best.

  1. In Colombia a bell pepper is called un pimentón. A chile, by the way is called un ají. The names of food in different Spanish-speaking regions is a fun subject. Love your blog, Rich

  2. There is no one “Hispanic Spanish” as every country has its own vocabulary. Cubans call bell pepper “ají”, pronounced ah-HEE.
