BACKGROUND:
Chile habanero (Capsicum chinense) originated in the Amazons and worked its way through various parts of South America, eventually working its way upto the Caribbean.Many believe it was introduced into Mexico through interactions between pre-Hispanic indigenous peoples. Regardless, it is much loved in the Yucatán where it plays an important role in its culinary traditions. It is a very hot chile, rated 150,000–325,000 on the Scoville scale. Compare this with the jalapeño pepper that rates a mere 2,500–8,000 on the same scale. It got its Latin name after it was so widely disseminated around the world that some considered China as its place of origin.
