If the spice/pepper overrides the entire dishes flavor, somebody has screwed it up.
the last time i was over that way i was offered a dill pickle and even that was soaked in some sort of spicy goo. i should have known something was up when the old coonass (sorry but you're all coonasses to me lol) pulled out a 5 gallon laundry detergent bucket and it was fiilled with pickles. lol
and no it wasn't soaked in detergent, he assured me the bucket was clean and perfectly safe. but to be honest that's the same incident that taught me to never accept anything offered to me by anybody wearing knee high white rubber boots. so far that has never ever worked out well for me.
