the real horror is when it comes out the tail-end
a respectable amount of zest for sure. Sometimes a little kick is all you need.
:) We eat ''hot'' here all the time. I think that our sense of taste adapts to it. Some 30 years ago I had thought that regular Tabasco is ''much''. I now use the Tabasco ''Habanero' type when I want it a little more soft - heh heh... But as I said: ''spicy'' is not a dare, but a taste. Some like it, some don't.
goddamn! what about while pregnant? Did you have to ease up on em? My stomach would be annihilated with anything above the Chocolate Habanero!
I don't have too much ghost, usually a teaspoon... I really like Mrs. Renfro's Ghost Pepper salsa.Tea spoon is good, my family has their own version that is home made that is better... but a little hotter.I actually can eat regular habanero like nothing.I don't eat a lot of peppers or salsa very often to begin with.
I'm thinking if you ate that stuff daily or close to daily you'd have ulcers by now. That stuff is serious! Once in a while if going that hot. Serranos, Poblanos, Jalapenos, Arbol, Japones, Thai, and Habaneros are the only ones i use daily/weekly. I guess you can add Tobasco and Cayenne to that list too if we factor in hot sauce.
Ironically the half of my family that comes from Mexico does each that stuff daily and they don't seem to have issues, maybe they got an iron gut from growing up with it.
@Aerissa_Jade I don't know my Chica is from El Salvador and that's not been the case with her people. And a lot of our neighbors from Mexico, as they get older they settle down a lot too. It's hard to do because peppers have such a rich and delicious flavor to them. I KNEW you looked like a Chica but when you said American Indian I was just like "well technically they're all American Indian ssoooooo they do look a lot alike sometimes."
