I sure do. I can handle some of the hottest of the hot, but I don't usually go for things THAT hot. I like a bit of heat, but I don't like burning out my taste buds. When I buy salsa though I will always buy hot unless others are eating it and them I usually get med.

the older i get the more i like hot foods. i love wasabi, hot sauce, pepperoncinis, chiles, and more than anything else my green curry paste, which i didn't try until not so very long ago but now adore.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

My step father and I had a hubris thing going on when it came to capcasen. We used to play "Eat that Chili" and bet each other how many Jalapenios we could put in the chili before having to eat it LOL!

Now though, I've got a nice big esophagial (SP?) ulcer that won't let me touch anything hotter than milk-toast.

My heat tolerance is not what it used to be. That said, I do like a little heat in some of my food, especially Mexican and Cajun. Now, PeppA, my other half, cannot handle a lot of heat. Most of what I consider to be "mild" is "insanely hot" to her.

I love hot stuff. It doesn't seem hot to me but my wife tells me that the things I eat are insane. Most store bought food that says HOT on it is just mild to me.

Nevertheless, food that is too hot sometimes diminishes the flavor.

I could pour gas down Barbara and light a match and throw it in afterwards She Loves it HOTTER than H> E> double toothpicks. I like it middle of the road.

I think Barbara is one of the Fantastic 4 " FLAME ON ".
If you need a smile, take mine, I'll make a new one.

I like very hot stuff but it needs to have flavor. Heat for heat's sake (exemplified in 99% of most "insanity-style" hot sauces, IMO) doesn't do anything for me.

I usually make my salsa but when I buy, I try to buy mild and doctor it up with my own homemade hot sauces and condiments.
