They really should put the Scoville unit rating on packages of hot peppers. One of the hot peppers I bought just before Christmas, put into a chicken-and-shrimp stirfry, was enough to have us guzzle two litres of milk. True enough, I also added some chile and garlic sauce, but all I was tasting — all I could taste — was fresh hot pepper. Ow. One may well be sufficient for a huge pot of chile.
