I don't get the question. The title says what chile pepper comes to mind when someone mentions it. In the post it asks for favorite. So is this just another favorite pepper thread???
What fish comes to mind when I say fish?
What is your favorite fish?
Favorite chile for looks only. Take taste and heat completely out of it. What pepper do you think has the best look?
To use celebrities as an example, I have the biggest crush on Anna Kendrick. She's cute, funny, seems like someone I would wanna hang out with (this would be your favorite chile, the whole package). In my mind the hottest celebrities are Liz Hurley (nostalgia edition) and Margot Robbie (current edition). They are absolute smoke shows on the eyes. They are both hot as all hell, and personality, being cool, etc., doesn't matter. This your favorite pepper to look at, nothing else like heat, flavor, how you use it, matters.
So, again, favorite chile LOOKS ONLY EDITION. Taste, heat, nothing else matters but how it looks.
