    The hottest recognized pepper in the world is called the Bhut Jolokia Pepper (also known as Naga Jolokia or Ghost Pepper).  The pepper is a naturally occurring interspecific hybrid and is found in the Assam region of Northeastern India.  It replaced the Red Savina as the hottest pepper in the world in the year 2007.  Hotness in peppers is measured in the amount of SHU (Scoville Heat Units) the pepper has.  Bhut Jolokia is measured to have a SHU of 1,041,427.  For comparison, Tabasco sauce is rated at 2500-5000 and the hottest Red Savina Pepper has a SHU of 580,000.

    As others have previously said here, the Bhut Jolokia, or ghost pepper, was recognized as the world’s hottest pepper for several years.  However, it has since been superceded by the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, ranked at 1.2 million heat units on the Scoville scale.
