The ghost pepper chile, also known as Bhut Jolokia, is a type of chile pepper that originated in Northeast India. It was once recognized as the world's hottest chile pepper by the Guinness World Records, but has since been surpassed by other varieties.

The ghost pepper chile is incredibly spicy, with a Scoville rating of over 1 million units. To put that into perspective, a jalapeno pepper typically has a Scoville rating of 2,500 to 8,000 units. The heat of the ghost pepper is caused by the presence of capsaicin, a compound found in many spicy foods.
The ghost pepper is typically small and has a wrinkled, thin skin that ranges in color from red to orange to yellow. It is often used in Indian cuisine to add heat to dishes and is gaining in popularity around the world in different cuisines. It is also popular in hot sauces and spicy snacks.

It is important to handle ghost peppers with care, as the capsaicin can cause skin irritation and even chemical burns. It is recommended to wear gloves and avoid touching your face or eyes when handling them.
Overall, the ghost pepper chili is not for the faint of heart and should be consumed in moderation by those who enjoy spicy foods.
