    I cooked it into my egg sandwich, and it's delicious, if not mildly hot.

    I cooked some feta into some fresh eggs from the chickens down the street with that red pepper a neighbor gave me (she gave me a bag of 'em). It's an awesome sandwich, but i was wondering what kind of pepper it is.

    It does look like the bhut jolokia. I'm not an expert. It could be anything.

    Looks like tabasco to me. Were all the peppers different colors?

    surely if it was a bhut jolokia, your face would be melting by now and those eggs would resemble Satan.

    The 5 long green ones are jalapeños, I think the yellow ones are habañeros, and the red a tabasco

    Years ago we had a tabasco plant on our kitchen table. A friend came over (drunk) and said he could eat all the peppers off the bush. There must have been 50 of them at least. He ate them by the handful, chewed them up and swallowed them down with beer. He said the next day his stomach felt like a steel drum
