Spicy Food/hot Sauce Lovers?

Thu Mar 31, 2005 12:01 pm

Hey folks

I have been a fan of anything hot since I was a kid. When I went to ERAU Prescott, I was introduced to the habanero pepper. I went to a little tourist shop there and bought me a bottle of Habenero 750. That stuff is habanero pepper extract, I would be lying if I said it wasn't that hot. Being that I love hot foods, I am a big fan of Mexican, Thai, Indian quisines. Do you have any good hot food stories or recipies?

Cheers

Do you ever have mango pickle with your food? An Indian friend of mine invites me over for dinner once in a while and offers that with his food. All I can say is Rocket Fuel! (note: Indian folks out there may disagree with me and say there is something hotter out there - if there is, please point me in its direction)

I'd sound like a drunk if I said "Spices are the spice of life..." but, well, they kind of are.

Have you heard of Madam Jeanette peppers?

It is an integral part of most carribean cuisines and they use loads of it. Once you eat the Chutney made out of that, you'll want Indian Mango Pickle as dessert, believe me!

I love hot and spicy food. I don't cook unless I have a bottle of hot sauce to one side and a container of cayan (sp) pepper to the other. I like habanero as well, but I don't like it when the hotness over powers all taste of the food.

Dave's Insanity sauce straddles the line between "condiment," which you can sprinkle on your food, and "food additive," one drop of which will turn a gallon of sauce into a raging inferno. The stuff is fantastic.

I love spicy foods. Mexican, Thai, Korean, Cajun...it's all good. I must say I prefer chipotles over habaneros though - there's something about that smoky, spicy taste that I like better than straight heat. Excellent way to make better fajitas is to marinate the beef with 1-2 chopped chipotles and some of the adobo sauce they come in.

I can handle moderately spicy foods. But the thing I don't like is the next day when my a**hole turns into an afterburner!  rotfl 

I do love Mexican, Thai, etc. as long as it's not on fire.

I grow and make my own salsa each summer. The family loves it. It's spiked with Tequila!

Count me in me!
I love spicy foods!
Some times when I get drunk, I like to eat a whole raw jalapeños pepper.
I also keep McHiliney Tabasco sauce in the kitchen and have it almost everything I eat.

I think I was feed this as a kid? Big grin

Being the poor, starving college student that I am.. hot sauce is practically a neccessity to spicy up those bland $0.99 Banquet frozen meals. I use hot sauce on everything.. frozen meals, Hawaiian pizza, chicken nuggets, corn.. anything! I mean, it's like $1.25 a bottle and it will last FOREVER! It's right up there with bread as a staple in my cupboard.

My personal favorite is:



It is SOOO good! Way better then Tabasco or that other crap.

I disagree.
That Tapatio stuff can be used as eye drops. That stuff is weak!
Tapatio has a decent flavor but hardly a 'hot' sauce.

Anyone else ever try this stuff?



Tried it one time at a local Mexican place at a salsa tasting. Good grief....I never before encountered a sauce I thought was "too hot" until that day.

I bought that stuff 4 years ago and I've barely dented a quarter of the bottle. Just put two or three drops in a pot of chili and that stuff will be just right for us hotheads. This is the kind of stuff where you need ice cream for your mouth and for your ass afterwards.

My regular stuff is AZ Gunslinger Hab or Jal sauce.


As much as I love heat, I love flavor too, so I also enjoy the green jalepeno sauces as well. There are quite a few good Mexican places up here in the Santa Rosa area.

I guess that's the difference between you and me. I'm not looking for a serious mind-blowing kind of heat. I just like having a little bit of spice as accent. Tapatio has the flavor and a tolerable amount of heat. Truth be told, I'm actually kind of a wuss when it comes to spicy food.  embarrassed

Cayenne. What bottle?

Not only does Tapatio taste better than Crapbasco (love the newer Chiplote Tabasco flavor though), it gives a higher quality heat. You feel it more where you should and none of that vinegar acidity. Still, nothing beats Cholula.

Happy Birthday Steve. Lots to congratulate you for lately. BTW, clean up that diet and do some real cooking brother.

Maybe someone can help me out. A place nearby - Buffalo Wing Factory - advertises something called "Flatliners". They make people sign a medical waiver before they eat them. I've been able to put down 10 of the ones just below Flatliners, which are called Torrid Zone. The guys there, though, let me try Flatliner sauce and I was in the bathroom trying to get the stuff off my tongue, I put sugar on my tongue, I spit it out as best I could - I want to conquer this stuff, and I need some help as to how to approach it. Just do it? Get better at Torrid Zone? Down a bottle of Ammodium AD prior to consumption? Have some warm water nearby (the guy at the bar said that keeps the tongue open for all the sauce to be washed down)? Guy sitting nearby at the bar was laughing, saying he's watched people walk around outside trying to get their stuff together, run to bathroom, quit after 1 or 2, all sorts of stuff. I want to conquer them, but if there's a more intelligent way to do it, then let me know. Work smarter, not harder.

I do enjoy spicy foods and the hottest sauce I ever found was at a Mexican restaurant in Cabo San Lucas called La Casa. I asked them for hot sauce, and they said really hot, and I said sure thinking it was going to be very bland. Little did I know it was a mix of Habeneros and other Hot Sauces, Ouch. But if you are ever in Cabo, go to La Casa, it is a good real Mexican Food restaurant, not that TexMex stuff.

Dave's Instanity Sauce  hot  is great but Dave's Limited Edition Insanity Sauce  melting  is freaking, ass-blasting HOT! With the regular Dave's, you use 1/2 a teaspoon in 5 pounds of ground beef; with the Limited Edition, you're talking 1/2 drops!
