Do you like those bell peppers or tobasco sauce?


Oh, and is it true that ketchup helps to cool down spiciness in your mouth or is that just a rumor?

The maximum tolerance I can hold is the spiciness of the Jalapeno.

I don't like spicy food, i think it takes the actual flavor from the food. However, chilies add a nice aroma.

To give you an idea of my tolerance, I eat 2 to 3 raw uncooked Thai pepper or Bird's Eye Chili with my meals that are often already cooked with the Thai Peppers. Just as a comparison, they are on the Scoville Scale of 100,000 while the Jalapeno Pepper is at 6000. Not bragging or anything but it's just a common thing to eat it with your meal OR cook it with your meal in Southeast Asia. I prefer to eat the green raw & the red cooked. The green ones are crispier to bite into while the red ones seem to be sweeter & soft which seems to be better for cooking.

I've had the Habanero Chili which is at 250,000 & I'll admit it kicked my ass but I loved it. It's fun to blow your mind on occasion but to eat it as part of your regular meal seems out of control. I'll stick to my Thai peppers for now.

Ridiculous but more power to you. I've never encountered a raw Habanero (I haven't see them at the grocery store) but if I did, I wouldn't mind trying it when eating lunch or dinner but probably not by itself. Is there a particular color that you prefer? I know that there is the black Habanero, orange Habanero & a milder yellow-orange Habanero. Took a cuisine class at school once. We did a chapter on chilis & Habaneroes & my favorite Thai chili was included.

I love spicy food, so my tolerance for it is pretty high. Had a spicy meal half an hour ago and earlier than that.

Hmm...I've only ever had black habeneros. I'll have to try some orange/yellow-orange types. :D

I enjoy it, but would consider my tolerance rather low. a few jalapenos in a meal is alright, but anything more than that is usually too hot.

Not incredibly high; I don't enjoy a lot of it. But in small doses, it can be very tasty... especially Thai stuff.

Mine is very high. My buddies and I can go to a wing place and they'll get mild or medium and I'll be getting the hottest thing on the menu. In fact I've let them try what I eat with no problem just to watch them freak out from the how spicy it is to them. :P

I have a pretty high tolerance for spicy foods. I like to put habaneros in my stir fry. The rush of capcacin from peppers is great.

As you get older, your tolerance for spicy increases as the sensitivity of your taste buds declines.

I can tolerate it in terms of eating, but my stomach can't any more.
