The recent heavy rain in the Eastern part of Nigeria, has necessitated our choice of cooking and eating spicy food like soups and sipping hot tea. Nigerian Peppersoup is known for being spicy. We use local spices to prepare these delicacies, moreso now that fresh Nsukka yellow pepper is generously grown in Nsukka ONLY and distributed across the country. The aroma of our Nsukka yellow pepper is second to none. Oh yes…I said that👌😆! And in case you have forgotten where Nsukka is located, University of Nigeria, Nsukka should remind you
I also love Cameroun pepper because of its unique aroma. I couldn’t avoid adding it in this peppersoup because it’s everything SPICY👌☺.
Let me save you all the gist and delve into the business of today. Here we go with the recipe👇

1. One Ice fish (Scumbia)
2. Onion (One medium-sized bulb)
3. One red ball pepper
