Has anyone ever heard of these? They are tiny green tomatoes from Mexico. I am trying them in a shrimp recipe tonight. The guy in the produce department had never heard of them either even though the store carries them. I was able to find them on my own.

I made a pork cheese dip with them.... They are very potent. So you don't need to use very much or many.
They aren't spicy but they do have a very different aroma.
