Spices for me but not for husband, so have to watch every ingredient.
I cannot easy spicy food like I use to eat. They upset my stomach
Love my Thai & Chinese foods spicy but not overly hot. Mexican food, it depends. Those carrot slices prepared in vinegar with jalapenos are fabulous as is some extra spicy salsa and I like to keep it where I can still taste the entree. No habaneros for me.
Same for any chicken wings; pour on the seasonings to keep it medium warm. I just can't do the extremes.
As a Malaysian of Indian origin, spices are a normal inclusion in our diet and we honestly cannot live without these on a daily basis....salt and pepper are just not enough!!
Have you heard about this spiciest chilli of India?
LOVE spicy food!
I love spicy food! Great article! Thanks!!
Ohhh, I love my hot sauce!

Thanks for sharing
Yaaaaay for the chili peppers! Thanks Melissa. This was a well-researched article!
I love hot sauces from all over the world and get them as gifts from people. There is very few that I have to use sparingly.
Good to know.
