Thanks RonRBG. Of course, it is not very difficult to locate vocabulary definitions online. The most interesting comments have to do with grammatical structure and common usage. For example, what is chili pepper water in common English? Hot sauce, perhaps.
It's a local Hawaiian condiment. Used similar to hot sauce, but more watery. To me, it seems like it really became a celebrated thing in the 2000s, but it seems it dates back to at least territory days. This article has a recipe and a bit of history for it: https://www.mauimagazine.net/savoring-the-burn/
Here is an alternative recipe: https://www.hawaiianelectric.com/recipes/find-a-recipe/hawaiian-chili-pepper-water
I am not sure what Hawaiian chili peppers are, but they are described here about half-way down the list: https://www.chilipeppermadness.com/chili-pepper-types/
