What is a "pimiento"?

Pimiento, also known as pimento or cherry pepper, is a type of chili pepper with a sweet and mild flavor. It is typically small, round, and red, resembling a cherry tomato in appearance. Pimientos are commonly used as a culinary ingredient, particularly in Mediterranean and Spanish cuisines. They are often roasted, peeled, and stuffed with cheese or other fillings to make appetizers like pimiento cheese or pimientos rellenos. Pimientos can also be chopped and added to salads, sauces, or garnishes, providing a sweet and colorful addition to dishes. While they are mild in heat compared to other chili peppers, pimientos still offer a distinctive flavor and vibrant appearance to various culinary creations.
