Hablanero (habla + habanero)

"Habanero” is a hot variety of chili pepper. “Hablanero”—“habla” is Spanish for “speak”—is a joke.

Wikipedia: Habanero
The habanero (/ˌ(h)ɑːbəˈnɛəroʊ/; Spanish: [aβaˈneɾo]) is a hot variety of chili. Unripe habaneros are green, and they color as they mature. The most common color variants are orange and red, but the fruit may also be white, brown, yellow, green, or purple.

Everyone’s heard of the habanero, but has anyone heard of the hablanero? The speaking pepper.

“habla” means speaking or to speak in Spanish, and it’s a pun with habaneros, like the pepper
