Bombs are a type of chilli used for stuffing. Remove the core with all the seeds attached (easier than it sounds), and you are left with a hollow sphere which can be filled with a stuffing containing meat, cheese or vegetables. The filled chillies are then baked in the oven, standing in a little water. Big Bomb has very thick sweet flesh with only a very mild pungency.
