    Chile Addicts

    New Mexico State University has named a new chile the worlds hottest.
    A couple years ago it was the Bhut Jolokia from India but new tests have shown three even hotter.
    Using Scoville Units where the jalapenos are rated at 4000-50000 SHU
    the hotter ones are :
    Trinidad Scorpion 2 million SHU
    Chocolate 7-pot 1.17 million SHU
    7-pot 1.06 SHU
    Jolokia 1.02 SHU

    I can't eat without heat but I'm going to stick with habaneros. These things might kill.
    Tracers work both ways.

    These chilis have a wonderful flavor that cannot be found in other peppers. The trick to enjoying them, (without spending time in the bathroom wiping your a$$ with a snowcone) is not to eat the seeds or pulp as much...
