    Spice it up

    Anyone else feel the need to make almost every meal spicy. I have been doing it my whole life. If out to eat I will order anything on the menu that says spicy. I add hot sauce to everything. My new kick has been to use cayenne during the cooking process instead of hot sauce after. Anyone else like this?

    Re: Spice it up

    Yes. Try cayenne pepper and kraft grated Parmesan cheese on your popcorn. I went through a 16 oz container of tones ground cayenne in just over three months.

    I've been eyeing a powdered habanero, scorpion pepper, and ghost pepper variety pack, but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    Re: Spice it up

    I love spicing everything I eat up but my wife can't eat anything over the level of ketchup. Makes it hard for me to do anything during cooking. Its just not the same spicing chili afterwards....

    Word to the wise, don't put Scotch Bonnets on pizza...it sounds like a good idea, I mean, Jalapenos are delicious on pizza, why not kick it up a notch. Because it will try to kill you, thats why.

    Well, Scotch bonnets are about 40x hotter than a jalapeno, so probably should have seen that coming.

    Re: Spice it up

    No, I do not like extreme spicy. If my mouth is on fire, I am unhappy, not to mention the rest of my digestive system.

    However, it's people like you who have made the manufacturers of Prilosec into zillionaires, so I guess you're good for the economy.

    Enjoy!

    See, spicy foods dont rot my gut. Too many sweets and high fats do.

    Although truthfully, I once got the Angry Chicken meal in Des Moines...(cant remember the asian rest.) and that was brutal on my innards.

    Re: Spice it up

    Yep, love spicy. Not quite to the point of blazing hot at BWW, but most anything below that is good. My gf can't handle it either, so I'll just make myself a separate pot of chili with my habaneros & what not.

    Agree. Extreme heat just for the sake of heat is dumb IMO. I prefer to spice things up with a cayenne pepper sauce or something else that adds flavor and some heat (chipotle, garlic, etc.)

    Re: Spice it up

    Love spicy food, it's such a fun game. I, and I assume Rhino, always try to get as hot as possible without being too hot so you can't taste other flavors and enjoy the food. Sometimes I go over the line and it's too hot, most of the time not. Really gets the endorphins flowing, love it.

    I'd be dead if I couldn't have spicy foods. I put hot sauce on nearly everything. Dammit. Now my mouth's watering.

    Yeah I think of spicy food closer to drano for your digestive track. I pretty much eat spicy foods because I do enjoy some heat, but I have learned my tolerance is much higher than a lot of peoples.

    Correct. I am not spicing it so hot as to make it unbearable, but I will test my limits. I try all sorts of hot sauces and will toss them out of they are just extremely hot without any flavor. I want both.

    I have done the BWW challenge and completed it. Got the silly shirt to prove it. They were really really hot. The bad part is that they are not very flavorful besides hot.
