Why do they call it chili if it is hot?
Alisha

It is called chili in Spanish from the word chile. It has nothing to do with the temperature. Chili peppers have been a part of the American diet  since 7500 B.C. European's came across them in the 1500's when they invaded Mexico. There are many different types of peppers. Chili peppers are the hottest of the peppers.
