#10 The Standard Bell Pepper |||| It would only really be fair to kick off with the most popular and versatile pepper in the world today, which although packs no heat of its own is certainly as important as any other. So, ladies and gentlemen, we kick our list off today with the humble and beautifully understated bell pepper. — Top10Buzz.com - World's Chili Peppers

#9 The Pimiento |||| One slight step up in the right direction from the humble bell pepper, the Pimiento might be more commonly known as ‘those little bits of pepper found stuffed into olives’ either by the jay or via a quaint little tapas joint. Either way, these zesty and tasty peppers could not go without a mention, though are hardly likely to see anybody reaching for the fire extinguisher. — Top10Buzz.com - World's Chili Peppers

#7 Jalapeno Pepper |||| 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville Heat Units
Moving into more familiar territory now, the jalapeno pepper is perhaps the current world favorite and found in thousands of dishes, salads and garnishes covering every cuisine imaginable.

#7 The Poblano/Anaheim Pepper |||| 500 to 2,500 Scoville Heat Units
Turning up the fire just a tiny notch now comes the slightly lesser-known (at least in global circles) Anaheim Pepper. This is a relatively mild example that originates from deep within Mexico and is a hugely popular staple across the country and indeed the US. An excellent pepper to cook with, dry out or eat raw, most would find the heat acceptable and far from sweat-inducing. — Top10Buzz.com - World's Chili Peppers

#5 Cayenne/Tabasco Pepper |||| 10,000 to 23,000 Scoville Heat Units
Coming in at up to five times the heat of the now seemingly humble jalapeno, the chipotle pepper is hugely popular in its native land of Mexico. Chipotle peppers are famous for adding a wonderfully smoky taste to the dishes they feature in, with a burn that follows smoothly rather than immediately blowing the heads of those consuming them. — Top10Buzz.com - World's Chili Peppers

#1 Trinidad Scorpion Butch T |||| Up to 1.5 million Scoville Heat Units,  Coming in at the number one spot is the current world record holder for hottest chili on Earth, the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T. True, there are currently very few recipes and preparations that really make the best of the T with any practical value, but considering the Scoville level is not far from that of standard issue pepper spray…well, you wouldn’t use that on your supper, would you? — Top10Buzz.com - World's Chili Peppers

Heat can vary from reasonably intense to pretty serious, therefore those not used to the burn may find this is where the scale becomes a little too hard to handle. — Top10Buzz.com - World's Chili Peppers
