Hot. Hot hot hot hot hot
. I was RAISED on spicey foods. I do enjoy a food that makes my tounge hurt. I did learn that some things can be TOO hot. If anyone has been to a hotsauce specialty shop, get them to give you a sample of pure capsaium (capsasian?) extract. It looks just like pizza grease, and they pulled a prank on me. They put it on my pizza, and since I hadn't eaten all day, I scarfed it down...and then I started to cry, and cought, and thrash, and proceded to throw up. Alot.
But back to salsa, I make my own. Usualy just enough for me. 3 seeded tomatos, 1/4 cup chopped onions, 1/4 cup of green (or red or yellow) peppers, 1 seeded and chopped jalepeno, 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, some lemon and lime juice (just enough to know it's there), salt and pepper to taste. That's some gooood stuff. Sometimes I add in a bit of tobasco sauce for a little different flavor.
If I can recoment a chip for salsa: Tostitos Hint of Lime. Also a good eat alone chip.
