Chili Pepper Heat Index [Infographic]

June 3, 2013  |  Food Infographics

Hot peppers, you either love them or you hate them. They add flavor and heat to many great dishes. They help to create those hot dishes that you challenge your friends to eat. Many people don’t realize that there are many types of peppers that range in level of heat.

This creative infographic shows the different types of peppers and gives a brief description of them. They are not listed in order of heat so don’t think that the fresno peppers are the hottest. If you like heat in your dishes your should try to use some of these peppers in your cooking. Remember thought the seeds have the most heat in them so remove those to cut back on the power of the heat.

Habenero is the hottest pepper I have tried and I thought my tongue was going to fall out of my head. I will stick to jalapenos with my tacos and burrittos. Have you found your limit with peppers? Can you handle the habanero pepper?
