Ghost Pepper Turkey Burger

I love this spicy spicy spicy Turkey Burger recipe with Bhut Pepper’s naga jolokia (ghost pepper). It’s definitely not a full pepper though, just a small amount of the powder. In fact, if you just ate an entire ghost pepper (ranking 1,000,000 on the Scoville Scale), you’d probably simultaneously be passing out and guzzling a gallon of water. The Scoville scale measures how hot a pepper is based on how many times it’s extract has to be diluted before it can no longer be tasted. The hottest pepper—the Naga Jolokia—has to be diluted 1,000,000 times!
