Cayenne pepper is a relative of paprika. But don't be fooled, cayenne pepper is much hotter. Cayenne is ground from a blend of several particularly hot varieties of dried red chili peppers. Its extremely hot and pungent flavor up to 40640 SHU. 
These peppers are measured using the Scoville scale, the measurement of the pungency of chili peppers found in Scoville heat units (SHU). Capsaicin is the part of the pepper responsible for its spicy heat, and the Scoville scale is dependent on the potency of the pepper’s capsaicin.

Bell peppers have a SHU of 0 since they do not contain capsaicin. Banana peppers rate from around 100-900 SHU and habanero chilis rate 100,000 to 350,000 SHU; whereas some of the world’s hottest peppers like ghost peppers rate as high as 855,000-1,463,700 SHU.
