Me me me! I love foods that clean out my sinuses. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"><br><br>
Unfortunately, I live with someone who is both a picky eater and doesn't like many spicy things. So, I don't get them often.

Best single meal I ever had was at a Sri Lankan restaurant. I ordered the dish (forget the name) at a heat level 4 out of 4. The waiter asked me if I was sure. I figured it couldn't be that hot, since I was in Minnesota (not exactly a spicy food haven). Ooooh boy was I wrong. It was so blisteringly hot I actually broke out in hives. It was glorious in a way.

I looooooooove spicy food! I discovered sriracha a few weeks ago and now I put it on almost everything haha. I never used to like spicy food much, but my taste buds have apparently changed because now I can't get enough!

I love spicy food but I don't like actually peppers. Sweet red peppers are okay but all the rest give me terrible heartburn. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> It makes me very sad.

I adore spicy food. I may be nuts, but I would swear that spicy food gives you a natural high. Anyone agree with me? My favorite is pineapple fried rice from the Thai restaurant. They put cashews, raisins, and tofu in it. Im always order it extra spicy. I also love spicy Indian and Mexican food. I cook a lot of spicy dishes, too. That's one thing my husband and I both like, thank goodness.<br><br>

BTW, I found a stuffed jalapeno recipe I want to make. You stuff a jalapeno half w/ vegan cream cheese and then wrap a piece of vegetarian bacon around it and bake. I can't wait to make this.<br><br>

You are 100% correct. It does. See <a href="http://www.edinformatics.com/math_science/science_of_cooking/capsaicin.htm" target="_blank">http://www.edinformatics.com/math_sc.../capsaicin.htm</a><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block"><b><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:small;">Capsaicin "high"</span></span></b><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:small;">The "<b>capsaicin high</b>" is a euphoric sensation caused by the consumption of large quantities of capsaicin from capsaicin-laden foods. It is theorized that the pain induced by capsaicin causes the human body to release endorphins. Eventually, enough are released to create a sensation that is frequently compared to "runner's high".</span></span></div>

I can deal with cayenne, but I don't go overboard with it. Jalapenos I can actually eat straight, seeds and all, but Scotch bonnets and those hot peppers that are shaped like small tomatoes are too much for me. I basically go for something that gives me some immediate heat, but not too much, and my lips a bit of a tingle afterwards.
