Despite having low stats, Chilly Pepper's ability to Freeze a zombie and the capability to attack zombies itself can help you if used correctly, as it gives you a chance to heavily cripple, and even destroy a zombie while it is completely vulnerable. A good zombie to activate its ability on is Tennis Champ or Mini-Ninja, as it makes them unable to hit you and let a plant, most likely itself, destroy them easily due to their pitiful health, or Trash Can Zombie, as it puts it into an impasse - you can't hurt it, but it can't hurt you either.
Rescue Radish is a good plant to use with this, as it allows you play this once more to Freeze another zombie.
Due to the low amount of health it has, the player should have no difficulties in defeating it with any damaging zombie card. If there is a zombie in a tight situation due to being frozen from Chilly Pepper's ability, simply heal it with Medic or play health-boosting tricks such as Vitamin Z to keep it alive for an extra turn for it to be defrosted.
