Latin American cuisine uses hundreds of varieties of peppers to create beloved smoky and spicy dishes that transcend borders -- from poblanos to jalapenos to pasillas. Why, you ask?

Tucked inside was a Very Special Limited Edition bottle of Hennessy and a matching scarf by Brazil's awesome twin graffiti artists OS Gemeos. The bottle is gorgeous and the fact that it's one-of-a-kind (er, in a limited run of 256,000), it was not a bad way to end a Monday.
