My hottest is Haberneros. I like them but only rarely eat one plain that is my limit although I often chop one up in scrambled eggs.

I'm more of a Jalapeno person. Have a few with nearly every meal, when I can find fresh ones. Oddly the ones I find up here in ND are hotter and bigger than what I used to get in Texas.

I ate some chili one time that came out of the microwave seconds earlier, and I think I actually "nuked" the roof of my mouth with residual cooking energy that hadn't dissapated yet.

I saw a video once where they took charred and diced fresh pineapple, cooked it up with brown sugar, water, and diced habaneros, (I would add a little dark rum), and served it over vanilla ice cream.

I definitely gotta try that some day.

I will probably try it. Have to pass on the rum. but sounds good even without it.

I used to have co-worker (he has since quit) but would make Ghost Pepper Hot Wings. That will definatly light you up. My lips would always swell up. We had one guy take tiny bite and he freaked out and tryed chugging chocolate milk which did not work to well, ha!

I remember when I was living in Mexico a friend and I used to engage in impromptu hot pepper contests. One day we decided to see who could eat the most haberneros. A youngster about 20 years begged to join in. He had never tasted one. We kept telling him "Mucho picante, es Muchisimo caliente"

He talked us into letting him try. He took one bite and ran screaming out the door.

Now I don't have near the tolerance for hot peppers I had at that time.
Wow, very interesting.

You may find this of interest - a NPR article about endorphins and one of their triggers - dihydrocapsaicin and capsaicin.
