Re: How Spicey Do You Like Food?

@Hung I love the hottest of the hot bring it on although one night at a Mexican restaurant I ate everyone’s hot peppers.....must say that was a very tough night that I didn’t think I would survive.Now I limit myself to what is on my plate and i get a good nights sleep.

Re: How Spicey Do You Like Food?

Thai, greek foods and mexican foods are my favorites. The health benefits have been proven, as well. Love the hot spices and over the years have incorporated those same flavors into most receipes. Like it hot enough to enhance and add zing! Don't want to make my friends and family have beads of sweat on their foreheads and feel uncomfortable.

Re: How Spicey Do You Like Food?

I don't like bland food.

I like to read recipes online and I'm just taken aback when the only seasoning in a recipe is salt & pepper. I need more than just S&P

 

I love black pepper, I like trying different kinds of ground pepper.

I love horseradish, I like hot radishes, pickled jalapenos.   Garlic

I like those jars of spicy Giardiniera

I prefer vinegar based foods, as in cole slaw & BBQ sauce, rather than sweet

If I'm going to sweat, it's not going to be over food, but I do like flavor.

 

I would describe my taste buds more toward acidity than spicy.

But spicy is OK.

I dont like food so spicey that the heat detracts from the flavor of the food.  Sometimes its so hot you just want to wash it down or get it out of your mouth and you never enjoy the flavor.

My father liked meat and potatoes, so that's what we ate.  Never anything spicy.  I like spicy.  Not five alarm spicy, but with a kick.

I didn't grow up with "spicy" food.  When I did try something with a little "heat", a little went a long way with me. No "spicey" sausage or anything else.  I know I'm in the minority!

 

Love "kosher" as in dills. Garlic.  YUM!!!  I was always a fan from when I was young.

 

I can't do the hot peppers or any of those foods at all.  A little touch of anything goes a long way with me.  Buy a pizza, I'll find the "heat" for sure!

 

How much "hot" do you like?

 

 


I like a little bit of heat or spice, but not so much that that's all that you taste in your food.

 

I don't like things so hot that your tongue and mouth start to burn where you then can't enjoy the taste of the food because the heat and the spice then start to overpower the food.

Re: How Spicey Do You Like Food?

I can still remember when I was a kid many years ago, my dad eating the hot peppers from the jar and the hot sausage slices that were in a jar. He'd have tears in his eyes and sweat running down his face-you bet I like spicy.

Re: How Spicey Do You Like Food?

I like my food quite spicy but just to the point at which you can still appreciate the flavors.
