    Just How Hot Is That Red Hot Chili Pepper?

    http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0803142453.htm

    I'm sure different peppers are used by different cultures/in different cuisines. I can handle the spiciness of Asian, Indian and Carribean foods but the peppers used in spicy mexican food wreak havoc on my tongue. I almost cried from the pain during my last encounter and water didn't help. Raven has since told me the key is to temper it with salt, not water.

    Here is the world's greatest site on peppers. New Mexico State University (NMSU) is home to the largest and most comprehensive resources and rsearch on "peppers".

    http://chilepepperinstitute.org/

    If you are really brave or maybe foolish ... you can find the world's hottest pepper. Yes they do measure these things [Scoville Heat Units (SHU)]

    They also have hints/solutions for what to do if you ventured into really hot territory.

    Enjoy ... but be cautious in what goes into your mouth.

    NMSU and others are also working on using the capsaicinoids as a pain relief source.

    Yeah Mexican food is spicy and has a lot of variety of spices included in their meals but I must say its a great cuisine for foodies no matter if its pungent with that red hot chili peppers.
    I like trying different combinations of spices in my food because of the aroma and the distinct taste it gives to the recipies.
