For me the spicier the better. Tabasco,jalapeno,etc. i love it. I do draw the line at anything preparred in a vindaloo style. For those who dont know vindaloo is a indian style of cuisine which is incredibly spicy. Last Saturday my family was at an indian restaurant where I ordered some beef vindaloo. Dont get me wrong this stuff was good-but it was real spicy. the first few bites were ok-but after a while it was impossible to stuff down with a lot of water,rice and bread.

I usually eat food as spicy as I can while still being able to taste the food itself. My personal favorite spicy food is Indian, but I'm a big fan of spice when it comes to Chinese and Mexican too, and to a lesser extent Italian (Arabbiata is fantastic, however)

Oooh I love spicy food. Today I had Vietnamese Pho Noodles.... wherein you put lots of chili paste, sriracha sauce (another chili sauce), and fresh jalepenos into the broth. Yummmm.
I like things very spicy, my tolerance is up to where tobasco (red) is no longer much of an issue for me. Things that still get me are certain types of asian chilies and Indian curries. Oh... but its so good going down!

Greg, here's another non-spicy food lover. I can't eat spicy food. I order my Thai with zero stars. I was brought up on a very bland British / Canadian Maritimes diet. My dad thought garlic was seditious. He ate pizza from time to time - but only the nasty ChefBoyardee pizza crust mix, nothing approximating the real thing. He never ate pasta as far as I know.
I am branching out from that limited diet, but I still can't stand food to be very spicy.

Spicy = good. I do have my limits though. Once upon a time I was at a salsa tasting at a local Mexican place and made the mistake of trying some "Mad Dog 357" which is pretty much pure habanero paste and is the Scoville equivalent of downing 2 Habaneros. My lips and tongue were burning for a solid hour after the tasting.

I am half Gujarati so spice runs naturally through my blood. I love spicy food, especially Asian (Indian, Thai, Chinese...ect) of any intensity as long as there's not so much spice that it actually ruins the food.
