    I loooove spicy food! But I do like it to actually taste good too. I don’t see the point of eating something hot just because it’s insanely hot if it would otherwise be gross. 

    My dad is a spicy food fiend–when I was growing up, he used to have hot sauce making contests with his friends and OMG, you do not know pain until you have breathed in habenero fumes. I’m not that crazy, but I think being around that upped my tolerance to the point that I like much hotter food than most people.

    I really like spicy food, but I like Cajun spicy. Darling Husband doesn’t like much spice at all, so I tend to cook more palate friendly now because of him!

    I love spicy food.  I usually have a bottle of “special” hot sauce (expensive) and a bottle of cheap hot sauce in the fridge.  The cheap is for soup, salad, potatoes, etc. and the “special” stuff is for a particular soup, burgers, etc.  Cheap is essentially heat, while special has a lot of taste.

    I grew up eating a habenero carrot sauce from Belize and that just changed my world, I think.

    I have the hot sauce because my Darling Husband is a heat newb and I have to be able to add the heat to certain things without getting it in his food. He doesn’t have even close to the tolerance I have.  He’s getting better.  His parents aren’t into heat…when they say “spicy” they mean “it has a lot of spices in it”…like cloves, etc.  I have heard them describe a pickle as spicy.  lol  When I found the above habenero sauce at a speciality store, I was so excited, I bought four bottles.  DH told his parents about it and their response was “why?  That sounds awful”.

    I don’t like it so hot that I can’t taste the sauce or the food, but a little sweat is great!

    LOVE spicy food. But only a certain type. I like the burn but if it’s all burn and to the point where the flavor is drowned out – then that’s a no for me. If they give you the burn and preserve the flavor, oh baby. πŸ™‚ It’s not easy to find but when we do hit the jackpot I’m in love. πŸ™‚

    I like it hot, but not overly so. I can deal with most all of the tabasco sauces found in the grocery store. I like the flavored ones the best (Chipotle Lime, etc). I don’t think I like it excessivey hot. Habanero would be WAAAAY too spicy for my tastes!

    My SO comes from a family like some of the PP’s described – where a pickle is considered hot and “spicy” means “lots of spices” lol! So sometimes it can make dinner a little frustrating. Especially my chili dishes, which are my favorite meals in the universe.

    I like it really hot. I’m actually a chilli addict to the extent that I had chillies in my bouquet.

    I grew up eating a lot of Indian food and developed an addiction first to Tobasco and then to increasingly hot sauces (I was going through a bottle of Tobasco in one meal, so I had to step it up a gear). Nowadays what is normal to me is scary spicy to a lot of people, but I do have a few chilli addict friends to share my love with.
