The Spicy Pepper is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a curative item that restores Link's health by refilling half of a Heart Container. Link can cook with it to add a "spicy" effect to dishes, granting resistance to cold, such as Spicy Pepper Steak or Spicy Sautéed Peppers. Link can also roast it to create Charred Pepper. Spicy Peppers are classified as fruit in Breath of the Wild and can produce certain fruit dishes depending on how they are cooked.
Spicy Peppers grow in several areas in the Great Plateau such as near the Bokoblin Camp with the cooking pot located on the westside of the Temple of Time. Link can also find them growing next to the archway that leads to the snowy region of the Great Plateau near the River of the Dead. They also grow in certain areas of Gerudo Desert and Tabantha Frontier. Spicy Peppers can also be found in the Woodcutter's House, two appear on the table next to The Old Man's Diary, while a third can be found in one of the Pots near the Woodcutter's Axe. These three peppers will occasionally respawn when Link returns to the area.
