Bell Peppers... wimps. Jalapeños... pantie-waists. Ghost Chiles... move over, a new champ is in town and its name is the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T Chile. This pepper is equivalent of just about 1.5 Million SHU (scoville heat units). To give you a sense as to what that means, well, a Bell Pepper has 0 SHU, Jalapeño ranges from 2,500 to 5,000 SHU and the Ghost Chile hits just over 1 Million SHU. Good luck eating that bad boy.
