My name is Vannie and I am the host of Hot and Spicy at BellaOnline. I'm hopeful that we can get a few folks here to talk about their fav. :love: hot and spicy foods whether it's BBQ with its "wow" that's hot flavorful taste or Thai food with its subtle hot spiciness that catches up with your tongue later.
Welcome to Hot and Spicy Forum.

Hi my name is Mike....longtime lover of the heat, looking forward to sharing some thoughts and ideas with some like minded folks here! I grow a small amount of chiles at home here in Wisconsin with pretty good success...this year I grew Carribbean Red Habeneros, Serranos, Jalapenos and Chiletepins....I made up a few big batches of hot sauce for family and friends, jarred a bunch and of course ate as many as possible fresh off the vine in salsa....As autumn is now upon us the time is here for full on indulgence in all things firey and spicy to warm us up on those chilly nights! Anyways, hello to anyone here, hope to hear from you....Mike

Welcome. You are our first member. It is duly noted <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> It sounds as if you had an awesome summer with peppers. Your family and friends are so lucky to have you around.
Did you pepper any vinegar with any of the peppers? It's grand on any kind of cooked green leafy vegetable, especially collards, kale and cabbage. You know, I love Carribbean Reds. I stopped a supermarket near my office one day last week and was enraptured with the pepper section. There are so many available now. Fresh off the vine must be pure heaven.

Hello Bella, Thank you so much for your lovely post. I'm so delighted to have found this site. I was looking for recipes for "Hot and Spicy" foods and up popped "BellaOnline." Just read your profile and love that you love Ireland. My family comes from Donegal. I also love to read books, especially when I'm at the beach
Chilli con Carne recipe which can have some spices/seasoning added at the end so that I can take portions out during cooking for kids who can't take their chilli too hot? Is paprika better than chilli for example?
I love hot and spicey,esp. chicken or veg. due to lack of cholesterol. I would appreciate recipes with a difference. I grow those little red devils and blend them in with various veg. like green pepper and garlic. That way they are more flavoursome than straight heat.
I just read that lots of our favorite spicy foods that are red contain a cancer-causing toxin. This has been banned in UK and USA etc now, but is still getting in, through cheap imported spices and mixes - ie from China etc.
Can affect recipes such as masala, tikka, sweet n sour, barbeque, satay etc.
