Ghost Peppers & Gardein Soft Tacos

My cousin sent me some ghost peppers fresh from his plants in LA.  This fiery monster's official name is Bhut Jolokia and it is touted to be the world's hottest pepper.

I sauteed up a small one with the Gardein, and although it has a nice smooth pungent spicy smoky flavor, I ate a whole one in the burrito without even breaking a sweat.  Good blend of heat with flavor, but I don't think it's the hottest pepper I've had.  I did take out the seeds and spines, which probably helped.

Gardein cutlets, avocado, tomato, ghost pepper, Daiya cheddar and, Vegan Gourmet sour cream.

Think it's a Superbowl snack?  Heck no.  I'm watching Gosford Park, then Downton Abbey on PBS.

Yum! My partner is obsessed with ghost peppers. He talks about them ALL THE TIME and likes to watch videos of people eating them on YouTube. Sometimes, we have contests to see who can eat the most habenero pepper without taking a drink. But we've yet to try it with a ghost pepper.
