    Anyone else eat a half a jar of habenero salsa like it was ice cream or dessert? I love hot food...Are my taste buds burned out and I am going to just burn up someday?...Do we just get used to it and want more? Kinda like something else we all talk about here? Gotta have more
    ?

    Nope.

    Salsa or any other kind of hot sauce, should have other ingredients to make it savory. If these other ingredients can't be tasted, then IMO it's not worth eating.

    I will eat jalepenos with a sandwich or burrito to give the food more flavor, but never to just eat them.

    NO. I made one of the biggest mistakes of my life when I was showing off and then proceeded to eat 1/2 of a raw red Habanero pepper. Within about 2 seconds of putting it in my mouth I realized that I was gonna pay for this mistake, and pay I did. In more ways than one right up until the next day...

    No...
    Heat, past a point, is like adding too much salt, or too much rosemary...
    If it becomes the elephant at the table it destroys the balance of flavors...

    I've never been a part of the "You call that hot? That ain't hot!" club...

    I'm not out to prove anything...

    Also, one must always look out for Uranus!

    I like to go out for ice cream after I have real spicy food...
    The next morning I'm sayin' "Come onnnn Ice Cream!"

    Cayanne pepper is great for seasoning alot of foods, but the habanero pepper is too much.

    Anyone ever heard of Insanity Sauce?

    My nephew tricked my into eating some on a Dorito a couple years back while we were lounging around deer camp. My father, uncle and nephew got a big laugh out of my rolling around on the ground, poring milk down my throat trying to stop the ever living HELL that was created in my throat and mouth.

    They thought it was real funny when I started frothing at the mouth and biting small trees down in an effort to get some relief.

    They began to get worried when I tried to cut my throat in an effort to get away from the pain.

    A couple days later they were able to unchain me from the large Oak tree in camp. My nephew still will not get closer than 50' to me as I have promised to make him pay.

    Tabasco is mildly spiced vinegar.

    Dave's Insanity Sauce tastes terrible. You're supposed to blend it into other things. It's a "heat additive", not a sauce. I've got sauces meant to be eaten on chips that are hotter than Dave's Insanity Sauce.

    A good mix for Dave's is

    1 jar Pasta sauce (Rag-Spew or whatever is cheapest)
    3 drops Dave's
    1 heaping tablespoon Thai red curry paste
    1 Tsp Cumin
    1 Tsp cracked pepper (Mix black and white peppercorns for best flavor)
    1/4 small bottle (5 oz) of Cholula (mildly hot sauce)

    Puree and serve on Tri-Color rotini pasta.

    Red onions make it even better.

    Just for fun and shear entertainment;) ;g , if any of you here grow your own garden, then the next time you plant one, plant a tabasco pepper plant and/or a jalapeno plant along with whatever else you normally plant. Then after the pepper plants start producing little peppers, and while the tabasco peppers are still light green (they will turn blood red when they are ready), go out and pick one off of the plant and bite it and come back here and tell us what happened next.;) ;z ;m ;f


    Hehehe. I'll admit it. I did this when I planted one single tabasco pepper plant last year. I thought (in retrospect, unwisely;g ;Q) that the little peppers wouldn't be all that hot since they were still a light shade of green. Wow!!!!! ;P ;G ^1 ^4 Just ONE of those little suckers lit me up like a roman candle on the 4th of july!;g ;P ^3 :drool: ;4

    I once won a jalapeno eating contest....coffee i've found is the
    best remedy for diluting the burning, but I pepper just about all
    the foods that I eat........I guess that I like things HOT. It
    must be genetic, because my mom is the same way!

    On a footnote, I've gotten my as kicked by my wife on numerous
    occasions when we make tomato juice, she has caugt me putting
    jalapeno peppers in the excess to the home made tomato juice.

    A guy has to have his red beer hot!....just some things that wives
    don't understand.

    I love Habanero heat but I too think the flavor is bad. Bitter.

    I grow Chile Pequenos which are hotter than habaneros if grown right. I keep my plants stressed for water which makes the peppers hotter ;) Over the winter somebody almost killed my plant and I pitched a hissy but managed to revive it.

    What chiles I can't eat fresh go into the freezer for winter.

    My favorite hot sauce is take four to six chile pequenos and crush them, seed & rib included, in a mortar & pestal with kosher salt. I then add this to about 1/4 cup of ketchup. Great with steak ;f

    I had a habanero white wine at the hudson valley wine fest yesterday.
    It was excellent, though I can't imagine anyone having more than a small glass of it.
    It was called Dragon Fire from the Pazdar winery. Email is pazdar@citilink.net. If you wanna try it.

    I like my food "hotter" than most, but some of you are just weird. How do you taste the food? I can't imagine ruining a good steak by putting that much hot souce on it. A little in the marinade is good though.
