Made with canned salmon, these patties are good hot or cold. I usually serve them on buns with slices of ripe tomato, sweet red onion, and red and green bell pepper. —Barbara Coston of Little Rock, Arkansas

Chili Peppers - What's Hot?
When it comes to chili peppers, some are hotter than others. Can you please provide some guidance? TOH: When it comes to rating chili peppers' heat, looks don't help: It's the seeds and membranes that count. Scoville Heat Units (SHU), named after researcher Wilbur Scoville and used by heat experts, indicate the amount of capsaicin, a potent compound that gives chilies their sizzle. Although the method for determining SHUs relies heavily on subjectivity, the scale is a respectable gauge. Use the following information from chiliworld.com to put the heat into perspective: Sweet bell pepper - 0
Cubanelle pepper - 100-1,000
Texas Pete Hot Sauce, T.W. Garner Food Co. - 747
Anaheim pepper - 500-2,500
Poblano pepper - 1,000-2,000
Jalapeno pepper - 2,500-5,000
Chipotle pepper (a smoked jalapeno) - 5,000-10,000
Serrano pepper - 6,000-23,000
Tabasco brand Habanero Sauce, McIlhenny Co. - 7,000-8,000
Cayenne pepper - 30,000-50,000
