Habanero chiles are extremely hot chiles used to make various sauces. The habanero is bright green to orange in color and is native to the Caribbean, the Yucatan and the north coast of South America. The chile looks similar to a Scotch Bonnet. While it is typically used fresh it can also be purchased in powdered form.
Depending on where in the country you live you may find these fresh chiles in your local well-stock grocery store or Walmart stores. Most markets that cater to the Hispanic community would carry these chiles. If you're looking for habanero powder it may not be that readily available. You can always find it online at specialty spice shops and of course, on Amazon.com. Habanero Powder
