Habaneros are one of the spiciest chili pepper varieties on Earth packing 100,000-350,000 SHU, the small, lantern-shaped habanero has an intense, burning heat. Habanero peppers have a fruity, tropical flavor with notes of pineapple that adds a level of complexity to its spiciness.
Yellow habaneros add exceptional flavor and heat to all manner of sauces, salsas, soups, and stews. Rather than incorporating the habanero into the dish, try placing the habanero on top of the sauce or soup as it cooks, covered, to infuse the dish with the flavor without overwhelming the dish with spiciness. Always wear gloves when handling habaneros!
