I wouldn't. Even roasting jalepeno's in the house or cooking them just regular, set my senses in a whirl. My husband for sure can't stand it. It'd probably fill your house with fumes that'd be awful to bear...

did it occur to anyone, that if these are so harmful to the outside of your body, what pray tell will it do to the inside.

Bummer, that would have been neat to say the least!

I've never understood why people get such a kick out of really hot food. I mean the real spicy stuff just kills me. I collect hot sauces. I have about 25 little bottles of them and love them. Mostly for their cute bottles but they do add flavor. But just drop, I am not even kidding here, on a scrambled egg, knocked me off the stool and set me to drinking milk all day long. I was on fire, no extra flavor, how can you taste something when your face is ablaze?

Me neither. I like the flavor of spices, so I am careful when I mix them to make sure they don't 'over power' everything else. Which is one of the reasons for smoking the habeneros, it helps to mild out the flavor as well as give it a nice smoky flavor. For me that means easier and more versatile use in recipes.
I really do like the flavor of Jalepenos, but the last thing I want to do is just sit there and chomp on them all day, or layer it on a pizza crust, use hot sauce for the pizza sauce, cover with pepper cheese, and call it a Hot Atomic Pepper Pizza!!
That's just showing off!

This thread reminds me of an article I read awhile back about a chef making nam prik pao (Thai pepper paste).

I've wanted to make the stuff myself, but don't dare try as my kitchen has no vent hood.

And I thought I was being a dare devil by dehydrating about 5 lbs of fresh garlic in the house.

I have a friend named Doug, who has moved to other environs, but when he was a neighbor, he managed a packing house in Oxnard, and when the habaneros came in he would give me about half a bushel. (I have to grow 'em or buy 'em, now). I always roast them OUTSIDE. I also dry them OUTSIDE. I also use them in salsa, for paste, sauce, minced fresh...I have been known to occasionally pop one in my mouth like a berry and scarf it down. They make incredible poppers...de-seed, and stuff with queso fresco, batter like rellenos and deep fry. An excellent excuse for drinking a lot of beer with lime and salt. If you need one.

It was holiday time and I made a batch of food for the girls/guys that worked there, me included. I love home made salsa and don't think I've ever made it twice the same way. I made 4 batches all different being very proud of my talent. Brought home made chips too and lots of them. A good variety I might add. There was tons of other food I made too but was particularly proud of the salsas. Expected rave reviews, gad, I'm caddy. The owner had been eating all day long seemingly enjoying every morsel that passed her lips and finally she came over to me and said, "You know the old saying is so true what they say about Mexican food." I said, "Oh yea, what's that." She said, "Mexican food is so good and so hot, follow it up with ice cream please and quickly to cool the spot." I've never forgotten that. It took me a minute but I figured it out.....
