Ghost chile, or bhut jolokia, is an atomically hot chile from the Assam region of Northeast India. It boasts a rating of 1,000,000 on the Scoville scale; the unit of measure for heat in chiles. For comparison, the fiery habanero rates only 200,000.

As the hottest naturally occurring chile in the world, ghost chile flakes will lend a power punch of heat- in addition their signature fruitiness- to chilis, soups, enchilada sauces, and even brownies. USE SPARINGLY!
