The Ghost Bhut Jolokia, Bhut Jolokia or Ghost Chilli has been around for quite a while and is very popular and well respected. It was the Hottest in the world in 2007 as well as the first chilli ever to rate over 1 million SHU. It is still held in high regard when it comes to flavour and is still a favorite of many hard core chilli heads (us included). It is commonly used in a lot of commercial chilli sauces and powders. If you have ever had hot chilli sauce that makes you want to rip your tongue from your head and beat it with a stick, chances are it was made with Ghost chillies!
