I needed some ancho powder to make Mexican style chorizo. Couldn't find any at the grocery so this morning I toasted and ground some dried pods that I had stemmed, seeded and de-veined yesterday.

I used to love foods with heat. Still do, buy my digestive system doesn't. Old age sucks.

I agree and it's not just big chunks. Ever had steak au poivre where the cook got a little heavy-handed with the black pepper? Whoosh!!

If I see the word "spicy" on the menu, I go right past it. There are plenty of other seasoning that work just as well, if not even better. There are a lot of veggies that I really like the flavor of. Even meats. I love lamb. Don't spoil it with a heavy hand of seasoning.

I picked up some fresh green peppercorns a couple of weeks ago. They definitely are "hotter" than dried black peppercorns. I played with those when I made the African-inspired roasted veggies...also played with pickled green peppercorns and papaya seeds...all of which have a "peppery" flavor but not the flavor of hot peppers.
