Hi and welcome, <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
You're missing out on some wonderful meals. I love :love: chili and barbeque but there is much more to hot and spicy foods. If you eat Chinese take out food take a chance on one of the hotter dishes. They are usually designated by a little chile pepper. Order 1 pint and see what you think.
Also, most of the recipes for is just regular meats and veggies just "taken up a notch" :beamedup: as Emeril says. I will post a few spices which may not be in your kitchen cabinet but should be. My guess is that you already have some of them there and may not use them, especially if they were given to you as part of a kitchen present.
Be adverturous, ethnic foods are seldom expensive. I will get back to you.
