Haitian Epis is a flavor based used in nearly all Haitian food. The recipe varies from region, but it typically contains peppers, garlic, and various herbs. The base is typically used to make rice and bean, stews, and soups. It is also used to marinate various meats and fish. Angela's mom uses tomatoes and habanero peppers too.
