Spicy stuff
 
what spicy/hot things do you most like to cook with/ add to your food.
and what do you like to add it to?
#1 for me is wasabi. i like it with sashimi and in my sushi, of course, but i also like to brush it onto steaks and mix it into mashed potatoes, etc.
#2 is Frank's hot sauce and types similar to that. i add that to macaroni and cheese sauce, dip eggs into it, add it to pierogies with butter, on cabbage and noodles, in beans and bean soup, etc.
#3 canned green chiles. i only use them once in awhile, but love them on Mexican food. they're so mild.
#4 is Chinese mustard. it has such a nice bite to it. mmmmm-mmmmmmm.:tongue:
BTW. someone who shall remain anonymous... we'll call her 'luv'... challenged the guys to down a shot of Tabasco with her.:ohmy: :ermm: ouch.
last time i get drunk and try to be a smart&%$.:smile:

With me:

#1 Banana peppers. I love just eating them straight from the jar. I dont cook with them much but I love the flavor.

#2 Jalapenos, chipotle and green salsa: I think jalapenos are versatile, flavorful and can be used in quite a few types of fusion cooking.

#3 Franks red hot, crystal, texas pete: more taste than spice which is always a good thing. If I want extra spice there's other things I can do.

#4 Habaneros: I've had a few sauces I've enjoyed with it, especially one carrot and lime based sauce from the deep south of Mexico.

#5 Poblano peppers: the only peppers I like to stuff and they make a REALLY good and slightly spicy cream of poblano soup.

#6 Wasabi: love it but I dont use it that much. Everything form Wasabi peas to a dab on sashimi.

For peppers love larger jalapenos, anaheims, or serranos to stuff for poppers. Have trouble getting too much of a variety here in the markets but grow those in the summer.

For hot sauce usually cook with crystal or texas pete, also like Franks, but for taste prefer tapatio or cholula.

Find habaneros generally too hot for anything but cooking and then use only sparingly. Although I know people who can just eat them straight. I cannot imagine a habanero ring of fire. :ohmy:

For just enjoying straight, I'll take kimchee or jalapenos in escabeche.

Love wasabi, but for some reason rarely use it.

Jalapeno flavored potato chips come to mind.

Habaneros are really tasty.

I love the Yellow Banana pepper, they grow great in my back yard.

LMAOOOOO I did that to a guy who lost at a game of pool against me. The poor sap went to the bathroom while I got the shots ready, tequila and tabasco. OMG.......I nearly DIED laughing at the color of his face when he took THAT shot :shock: :lol: :rofl: :excl:

Lately, I find myself experimenting more and more with Chipotles en Adobo. I just love the flavor.
