What is in a habanero pepper to make the spicy?
Capsicum oil, never touch your face/eyes after working with a habanero.
The term "bell pepper" implies that it's not spicy, but yes, unless you're talking about a SPECIFIC kind of pepper (i.e. Habanero, Jalepeno) they are the same. Take care. Red pepper is also the name used to describe the hot pepper flakes used in Italian cooking. That's very different from red pepper meaning a bell pepper.
