Tabasco Chili Pepper
Let's start off with a familiar face. The Tabasco Chili Pepper, named after the Tabasco region of Mexico, is very commonly used in hot sauces all over the world. Use this as a frame of reference: this small, thin, bright red pepper hits the Scoville scale with a measure of about 30,000-50,000 SHU. Pretty darn hot, right?
