I LOVE 2 EAT #8: The 10 HOTTEST PEPPERS IN THE WORLD!!!

Pods that Pack a Punch!
GOOD FRIDAY to ALL f My CRAZY COOL GROOVY Red Hot Chili Pepper Lovers of ALL Colors, Shapes, Sizes, Flavors, Persuasions, and Denominations!!!

LATIN AMERICAN Cuisine uses hundreds of varieties of peppers to create beloved smoky and spicy dishes that transcend borders.

WHY???

According to THE LATIN KITCHEN, not only do they add flavor, but peppers are actually good for you!!!

The vitamins and minerals they contain can potentially serve anti-bacterial and anti-carcinogenic purposes. But watch out for the peppers on this list, as their high rankings on the Scoville scale (used to measure that familiar spicy heat) mean they are no joke.

Consider yourself warned; a bite of any one of these rare little guys will get you a one-way ticket to the emergency room, so proceed with caution.

Check out the TOP 7 o The 10 HOTTEST PEPPERS IN THE WORLD:

Tabasco Chili Pepper
1.) TOBASCO CHILI PEPPER

Let's start off with a familiar face.

The Tabasco Chili Pepper, named after the Tabasco region of Mexico, is very commonly used in hot sauces all over the world.


Malagueta Pepper
2.) MALAGUETA

Native to Brazil and Portugal, this pepper ranks from 60,000-100,000.

WARNING: Do not confuse this for malagueta, the Spanish word for allspice.


Tepin
3.) TEPIN PEPPER

This tiny, round, bright red pepper grows in the Mexican wilderness, usually in the mountains.

They almost look like acerolas, or Caribbean cherries, but do not get them confused!

Habanero Chili Pepper
4.) HABANERO CHILI PEPPER

With the 30,000-50,000 SHU of the Tabasco pepper in mind, we present to you the Habanero Chili Pepper common to Mexico, Belize, Panama, and Costa Rica.



Scotch Bonnet
5.) SCOTCH BONNET

Don't let the darling and sweet name fool you!!!

This is one of the world’s biggest misnomers and world's spiciest peppers.

This gorgeous and bright yellow pepper is found mostly in the Caribbean islands and the Maldives, and though some sweet versions of Scoth Bonnet are grown (called Cachucha peppers),


Red Savina Chili
6.) RED SAVINA CHILI

Ranked between 350,000 to 580,000 at it's mildest (ahem; that's 12 times as hot as a Tabasco), the Red Savina Chili from North and Latin America held the Guinness World Record for hottest pepper from 1994 until 2006 when it was de-crowned by the Naga Jolokia Pepper of India.


Chocolate 7 Pot Douglah

7.) CHOCOLATE 7 POT DOUGLAH

CHOCOLATE!!!

TEMPTING???

NO!!!

Not THIS chocolate. The Chocolate 7 Pot Douglah has an average rating of 1,169,000 on the Scoville scale. Though surprisingly, many who have tried this dark colored Trinidadian pepper say it has a nice flavor in addition to its sharp spicy bite
