Red Bhut Jolokia Peppers are absolutely one of the hottest chiles on the planet. They measure 1 million on the scoville scale while jalapenos measure between 7,000 and 11,000. These glossy peppers have bulges, featuring a bright red hue and medium to thick flesh. Bulges translate to mean more flavor, both in sweetness and in spice.
Peppers (Bhut Jolokia, Red)
Bhut Jolokia Peppers are extremely hot and potent; rubber gloves are highly recommended when handling them. Stir into stews, chop up into condiments, or sprinkle over meats to experience a taste of northeastern India. Be warned, a little goes a long way with this pepper – you only need a small amount in your recipes to add flavor and flair.
