The World's Hottest Chile

...or "chilli", as the Brits apparently spell it. Dang Brits. It's like they think they invented the English language or something.

Just a quick review: the heat of chiles is rated via using Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Bell peppers are rated around 0 - 300 SHU. JalapeƱos are closer to 2,500 SHU. The previously hottest chile on record was the Red Savina habaƱero, at 577,000 SHU. And the great Dorset Naga checks in at 923,000 SHU. Check out the article at:
