Where I worked at a stuffed bell pepper was tomato sauce and rice.
Talk about disgusting.

Those triangular peppers were poblanos some are way hot some aren't.
I grew some that were hotter than jalapeno peppers.

Well, they're not the Poblanos that one gets in the market. Might have been a landrace variety, one grown not too far from Juarez.

3 years ago I got a Bonnie "Thai Pepper" plant with the small fruits that were very hot. The plant was very small, too. I saved seeds and grew it again and it produced fruit that was much, much bigger, and only good for drying and making powder, which was still hot and quite tasty. I think the Bonnie plant was a hybrid.

They will get hot. This seed came from the package of large red chilis that I bought dried in a food market.

Just thought I would update my experiences with this pepper as the plant has expired due to cold weather.

This was one weird pepper, in my opinion, and maybe it was just the plant I grew.

Each time I went to the garden I picked a pepper from the plant and ate it while walking back to the house. Red / green or inbetween, with few exceptions, there was absolutely no heat until you got within 1/2 and most times 1/4 inch of the stem. You could eat 2 to 3 inches of pepper with nothing and then in that last bite would either have a pleasant burn or have your socks blown off. It was a literal roll of the dice. I can recollect only one pepper that had heat from first bite to last and that was a mild heat.

I dried quite a few of the pods to use , so I may grow It again next year to see if there's a repeat performance.
