Chili Peppers

They're what a lot of people think of first when the topic of Thai food comes up: Those teeny tiny innocuous looking chilies that don’t seem like they could do much harm, but those that have carelessly eaten one on that assumption know better. David Thompson, in his compendium on Thai Food, refers to them as ‘scuds’ for their ability to sneak up on you and wreak complete destruction on your tongue.
