OK, folks, let's put this in perspective. Cinnamon rolls are spicy. Some hams are spicy. Spicy can mean it is full of cinnamon or cloves. If you want hot, say HOT! When I go to a Thai restaurant, I specify "Thai Hot". When I go to a Mexican restaurant, I ask if they have a hotter salsa than what they put out with the chips (if it is a real Mexican restaurant, they often have one they bring out for gringas and one for their regulars). I live in the midwest, where bland can be king. But learn to say HOT when you mean HOT. There are a lot of spices out there.
