I absolutely adore habaneros, and use them liberally for the same purpose. I was addressing your specific lack of experience with the "super-chillies"... As in, this was something that I tried using reapers, which genuinely worked as a dish. Yes, habaneros work well in this. But the dried Reaper just transmogrifies it into something really special. I have also tried blending habaneroes for sweetness, and balancing that with the terrifying strength and flavour of the Reaper. It takes a few goes to get that right, but it's worth it.

Plus, if you're serving it to people, you get to call it "Reaper Soup" which sounds elephanting bad-ass. Or "Reaper Stew", if you're doing a sauce. I find that stewing rough cuts of meat in a Reaper and tomato sauce, the kind of not-too-fussy butchering job with some fatty bits, bones and even some tendons still in, makes for a fantastic taste and fun to eat. It also adds to the dramatic effect for your guests, particularly if they're not used to a rustic style of cooking where you get bone-in stews all the time. Good for Hallowe'en parties and the like, served in a giant bowl and accompanied by crusty bread and full-bodied red wine. You get the idea.
One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don't know.
