How spicy do you like your food?

My husband always says that i put too many chillies in when I cook Thai food for him. How spicy do you like to prepare your Thai/Ethnic dishes? Im addicted to chillies :)

I tend to make my dishes less spicy for him, and keep some chopped chillies to add to my portion. The spicier the better :)

It depends.

When I was younger the sky was the limit.I used to make smoked habaneros every time I BBQ,d.I can still eat fire,but acid reflux really makes you pay.Enjoy it while you can,because after you get older it really kicks your butt.After just a couple of jalapenos now I could really use some depends.T.M.I I guess.

If I have an option between hot , medium or mild , I choose the mild!

Very. In my noodle bowl lunches, I am up to 6 peppers.
So now when I make spicy, I have to remember my wife is tolerant but
not a chilihead like me! So I make it bland (with only 2 peppers) and add mine
on the side.

Not too hot, I like spicy, but it doesn't like me.

Less so than when I was in my twenties....but still moderately spicy. Unfortunately, I often cook for my mother and my fiance, neither of whom can tolerate too much spice.

Difficult question to answer. When I say I like HOT HOT foods, you may taste them and feel like they are no more than medium. Everyone's perception of heat is not the same.

I like heat in some dishes but I don't want it to be the overpowering flavor of the dish but a compliment to the other flavors.
