*SHU stands for Scoville Heat Units. It's a way to measure how spicy a chilli pepper or any spicy food is. The more SHU, the spicier the food. If something has a low SHU, it's not very spicy. For example, bell peppers have 0 SHU because they're not spicy at all. Very hot peppers can have a very high SHU, meaning they are really spicy.
