While we were on vacation over Christmas, we ate lunch at a great Mexican restaurant in Branson, Missouri. My 12-year-old son Ethan announced that that he wanted the hot salsa, the the Habanero salsa. I tried to talk him out of it, but he insisted...big mistake on his part, but we live and learn, right? According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the Carolina Reaper Pepper is the hottest pepper on earth. Habanero peppers are not quite as hot as Reapers, but they are plenty hot, as the people in the below video can attest to. By the way, my son doesn't like peppers anymore.
