Ingredients
450g (1 pound) hot red chilies I used Bhut Jolokia, 7 Pot Trinidad Chillies
4 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sea salt
Instructions
Place all of the ingredients in a food processor
Pulse until the ingredients form a paste
Scrap into an air tight container and store in the refrigerator

Note: I grow all of these chilies and try to get the hottest ones I can grow.
The Bhut Jolokia is 995 times hotter than the tabasco chili. In 2007 it was the hottest chilli
in the world. The 7 Pot Trinidad chilli is less hotter than the Bhut Jolokia on the scoville
scale. Not much though. Still very very hot !!!!
