Technically, all peppers are part of the genus Capsicum, which includes the full range of peppers including super hot peppers like the Carolina Reaper as well as sweet peppers such as the Bell Pepper. We like all chile peppers, both sweet, mild and super spicy. They all have their various uses, whether it be to add depth and flavor to dishes or for fiery salsa recipes or chile stews. For ideas, view all of our favorite pepper recipes »
