I'm Indian so I think I'm just genetically predisposed to like... no scratch that...NEED spicy food. I've pretty much desensitized my taste buds to the spiciest of the spicy. A few of my favorite spicy foods include anything Indian, anything Thai and soondubuchigae (Korean spicy tofu soup)... I always order the "danger" spice level at the Korean tofu house I go to.

I, too, enjoy spicy foods. I'm Acadian (related to the Cajuns) so I guess I may have a genetic disposition also. In Thai restaurants, when the asked how spicy from 1 to 5, I used to reply "10." Now I just ask for a dish of peppers on the side. :-)<br />

Friends call my chili "Cajun Chili". It contains no hot sauce (and I stock some drop-you-to-your-knees concentrated habanero hot sauces!) Instead my chili contains a red bell pepper, 4 jalapenos, 4 red fresno peppers, 5 serrano peppers and 4 of the biggest habaneros I can find. Hot sauce would be redundant. :-)<br />

An Indian friend taught me to make homemade chai tea some time ago. I'm off coffee completely. I drink at least 3 big mugs of chai tea a day.

It's a buzz eating really spicy food I think, the endorphin high. I just started cooking Indian cuisine last winter, nothing fancy just curries and tikka masala. I couldn't help but add lots of sambal chili paste until it was nuclear hot. The best meal when it's 20 degrees outside.

I love eating Indian food. I enjoy the aromatic taste and not so much the spicyness. I love the taste of fresh ginger, the chillies, the garlic, the coriander or cilantro. Danger Spice, that would have me running to drink cold water.
