No problem. In fact, I even apologize if I was offensive. But if you take offense when I say you can't "take the heat" please remember spice eaters take equal offense when you say "heat is not flavor". That is all I ask. And it does not seem like too much.

Harry: Mexican Chili Sauce

Harry,

I too am a " piquant " aficionada, as I love chili peppers, fresh and dry ...

I do have an old old recipe from Mexico 1980s where I had lived for two years. Let me see if I can find it and I would post it for you.

I am also a vindaloo woman ... aromatic, and just divine.

Margi.

In Jamaica they had really tasty hot sauces to go with the jerk chicken. I saw one man take a huge mouthful - big mistake.

He swiped his kids lolly ices and had 2 of them stuck in his gob for a long time.

Hilarity ensued.

Harry, sorry mate but I only now saw this post. I have a bottle of Dave's Ghost Pepper (aka Naga Jolokia) Sauce in the fridge. I like to think I have a very high tolerance for fiery foods, but this is one sauce that scares me a bit. I actually bought it because many of the Thai restaurants around here season their food for American palates. Even the hottest level isn't that hot.

So I take my little bottle of ghost pepper sauce with me when I dine out and put a few drops in the food when it arrives. Seriously, TWO or THREE drops. That's it. It really is that hot. Any more than that, and the food is just not enjoyable.

Now I know there are those of us who like to puff out their chests and say things like "no sauce is too hot" but I guarantee this ghost pepper stuff is capable of inducing tears in even the most heat hardened individuals. I've witnessed it firsthand.

Oh, and I should also add that it isn't just empty heat. It does have a pleasant flavor, similar to habanero, which you taste up front just before the actual heat whollops you upside the head.

Beer is the best antidote to consuming food that is too hot. The carbonation helps.

Most experts agree it's dairy that's the best antidote.

Most experts agree that you shouldn't consume too much hot food. :)

no probs steve.like the idea of using it to top up the heat in restaurants...i tend to find that in the thai restaurants over here too.no problem in the chinese & indian restaurants though.
interesting that you said it's got flavour too.guess i'll just have to buy some & let y'all know!
thanks steve

I saw Alton Brown on his food science show putting to the test water, beer, and milk with the food techs and hot stuff. The carbonation in the beer actually spreads the hot stuff around, making it more painful! Dairy was the way to go.
