The World's Hottest Pepper

default-image

Experts at New Mexico State University’s Chile Pepper Institute announced that a variety of chile known as the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion is the hottest chile pepper in the world. It's the fieriest among a class of peppers so spicy that their heat-creating capsaicin compounds permeated scientists' latex gloves during harvesting. True heat enthusiasts will soon be placing orders for hot sauces made from the ultra-spicy chile, but the rest of us can stick with just-spicy-enough jalapeños. Used fresh in Charles Phan’s Spicy Lemongrass Chicken, jalapeños add bite and desirable heat to this incredibly flavorful and superfast wok dish.
