These chiles average an amazing 1.2 million SHUs. We recommend people handling Scorpion Chile Powder wear appropriate gloves and eye protection as they're so potent they can irritate and sting skin or eyes. The chiles themselves have a mild smoky flavor with slight fruity, citrus notes but usually the intense heat takes over.
|Common Uses||Dangerously hot, scorpion chiles are one of the hottest chiles in the world and should be handled with care. A little goes a long way, and the heat lingers. Use extremely sparingly in fresh salsa, sauces, chili and soups, and only where extreme heat is desired. Blend with oil and strain to use as extra hot chile oil.|
