Hot Peppers Bring the Heat 

There is no doubt that hot peppers bring the heat with the power-packed chemical compound capsaicin. Capsaicin has been used in everything from bear spray to pain relievers for arthritis and other ailments. Hot peppers also bring bold flavors. A pepper’s range in heat uses the Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) scale. For perspective, a sweet bell pepper has 0 SHUs, and a jalapeno is somewhere between 2500 to 8000 SHUs. But hold on! What about the world’s hottest pepper, the Carolina Reaper? It has a mind-boggling 2.2 million SHUs.
