Smile Ouch! That's good!


So do you like spicy hot food? Got any favorites to share, or a custom blow-your-head-off recipe for a sizzlin' meal?

Me, I absolutely love hot, spicy food. Naturally, my favorite foods are all hot n' spicy dishes. (Though, they aren't nearly as HOT as I've seen other people eat)

I'll start out with one of my favorites -- but just to warn the purists, I am not even close, not even remotely close, to a cook. I just throw stuff together or order something and spice it up a bit.

Favorite food (I'm eating it now!... Hotmelt (Hormel) Chili:

Code:
1 can Hormel Chili with beans (or really chunky thick alternative)
~2 Tbsp Red Pizza peppers (should be 10-11 pepper flakes visible on a spoonful)
~1 Tbsp Louisana Hot Sauce (any brand)
~1-2 Tbsp regular black pepper
~4-8 packets Taco Bell mild sauce (trust me, mild = best)
1 Tbsp butter

Warm to a simmer and serve immediately. (it just so happens I like my food served hot both ways)
I know I know, not exactly a chef's delight or the hottest thing in the world... But I love it and it does offer a kick in the mouth!

LOL, nearly spot on -- though I'm no college kid. I'm just a post-high-school lounger.

Sometimes I am in the mood for something spicy, and some cold brew to wash it all down. The only downside is that my stomach is not like it was when I was in my teens, and now sometimes spicy food gives me real bad heartburn, and it feels like I have stomach acid up into my throat. It sucks.

Anyways, what you're eating seems rather mild in terms of what I have downed (particularly my trip to China). Most would associate maybe Thailand with spicy food, but I have seen food even in China drenched in some really crazy-hot spices/peppers.

There is also a pepper the wife likes to use, and I like to sample some of it when she makes me noodles, all you need is a little bit, barely even a teaspoon full of this stuff, and your mouth is on fire. I usually try to get the oily part and mix it in, and it gives it a nice flavor, but even that and you better make sure you have a glass of water on hand.

Speaking of chili, the best kind is Wolf brand chili (preferably with meat & beans, NOT the no meat kind), add some tostitos cheese, or velveeta or whatever you prefer for cheese, mix it in, nuke it in the microwave for 3 or 4 min, then mix some more, and eat with chips.

Chili with garlic, sounds like a good combo to me

Lol! Yeah, like I said, that Chili is by no means flaming. But it certainly is nice.

Speaking of which, I have never met a Chili that tasted as good as Hormel. I tried the Wolf chili a while back but it was missing... something.

BTW: What is the name of that pepper?

The hotter the better.

Indian food is my favorite.

Well the bottle has the word 'Ning Chi' written on it, it is some special kind of chili pepper I guess. Either way I don't think you will be finding it anywhere in Oklahoma. There is a sizable Asian community here in North Texas and quite a lot of Koreans here now. There is a Chinatown but not here, although you can get a lot of Chinese stuff here too. Also the local h-mart store is literally beating the crap outta walmart and any other US store, ..

When I was in grad schools we had a couple of Indian women working in the lab. When we had pot-luck dinners, they would spice something so they could just barely taste it.

The rest of us were rolling on the floor in agony and screaming for our mommas.

Well I do sometimes like spicy food, but at the same time using too much spice and not being able to actually have all the flavors except for the peppers/chilis really seems kinda pointless to me. There is nothing wrong in making it a little hot, but not so much to where all you taste is the burning and don't actually have any of the flavors of the actual food.

Most Asians and Latinos tend to do that, and to me it kinda ruins the food.

When my mom was working for a hearing aid company, she had some Indian co-workers that would bring their own food during lunch, and yea all of it had tons of spices and chili peppers, etc. However that one day one of them actually got really sick because of it, and someone had to call an ambulance! Yea, you can even die because of how hot and spicy it is

One of my favorite dishes I fix sometimes is Jambalaya...with chicken, beef/turkey sausage, rice, tomatoes, celery, and chili peppers, chopped up. The wife gets mad when I put the peppers in it.
