    Who all here can handle eating hot peppers. I work with a guy who must have a cast iron mouth, stomach and colon. I don't see how these people do it. Hot peppers make great salsa though.

    I like a fresh habanero pepper and in LA we also season the best. Geaux hot or geaux home is our rule in the house.

    Different tolerances for stuff, I guess. I grew up eating hot, spicy food, and I can't get enough of it. I have friends that balk at wasabi - buncha pansies. That 'burn' barely clears my sinuses and it doesn't last long enough to boot. :)

    I see you live in NC you should be okay as your weather stays milder than here where I live in Va. I noticed one little flower on mine. Thanks for the pic

    I haven't ever really eaten hot peppers by them selves except for once in Guatemala.. but I have recently taken to spicy foods.
    For instance subway sandwich with the jalapenos. Sauces are always good with a spice also.

    Love spicy food . I love crunching on a fresh jalapeño with a sandwich. I have limits tho. I can't bite down on a habanero. I'm growing them and I don't even know what I will do with them.

    My wife and me made some killer salsa a few years ago when I went crazy with the pepper plants. The stuff was hot but very addicting. So.........much better than that stuff you buy in the supermarkets.

    This will step on some toes but adding just a Jalapeño to something is not really spicy at all and doesn't have much flavor. You need a lot more kick and herbs to make something worthwhile. Anyone else cook with all these?

    This is about a month and a half worth of spices so its only practical to buy bulk.

    Guess everyone is different. The spices and herbs bring out the flavors IMO. I'll leave it at that.


    There's Cayenne Pepper and others in there that will give it a nice kick. Growing up with everything seasoned you get immune to it and have to add more and more to taste it. Some can't eat at our house and others love it.
