The heat of chiles is rated in Scoville Units. A rating of 100 indicates that a chile must be diluted 100:1 before its heat becomes undetectable. A Serrano comes in at about 15,000, a Habaneros at about 200,000 and a Ghost Chile (Bhut Jolokia, Naga Jolokia Bhut = Ghost, Naga = Cobra, Jolokia = Chile) at a scary 1,000,000. It is popular in Northeast India, in sauces, raw, as an elephant repellant, and surprisingly, as a cure for stomach ills. Use it as you would any other chile, but very, very carefully, Eye contact is dangerous. All skin contact should be avoided.
