I hadn't had any peppers for awhile, they just got too expensive and I just learned to do without.
When I had the chance to buy some pretty ones at a reasonable price I started putting it into everything that I used to, and discovered I don't like the taste anymore. It's just too strong.
Pepper too. I over peppered one split pea soup too many and realized that everything had that flavor, and that it over powered the flavor of the food, so I pretty much stopped using it. I had also gotten too heavy handed with all the spices, that I made a plain batch of split peas, by the package directions. It was incredibly delicious.
I got the idea from one time I made up a batch of beans and forgot to add the onion and garlic. It was refreshing to taste the beans without those other flavors we take for granted.
