Out of the Blue

After I made my chili over the weekend, a couple of folks questioned what happened to the dried Ghost Naga peppers I picked up this summer for the purpose. The answer is, they are still awaiting a use, but since I was setting out to make a batch of chili that's just moderately hot (let's say three alarm), this did not seem to be the right time to experiment to find the proper quantity of what's described as the "world's hottest pepper." I'll definitely make some chili with them at some point, though I am also contemplating creating some evil hot sauce as well.

I tried your chili recipe way back and it was delicious.

I'm planning on using the new one with some dried ghost chillis, but I'm a bit nervous on how much to put in. I may drop just one in and see. If its 8 times stronger than a habanero, then 1 ghost should equal "weapons grade" plus a little bit

I'd kinda like someone else to try tho, before I kill my workmates...

Funny, I wouldn't mind someone else taking the plunge first either. As I said, I may experiment with making some hot sauce using one of the ghosts to get a sense for how potent they are.

Glad you liked how the chili turned out.
