The "🌶" or hot pepper emoji is often used to represent spiciness or heat, both in terms of food and in a figurative sense. It can also be used to indicate excitement or intensity. The emoji was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and has since become a popular addition to digital communication.
