  • Hot, spicy, high acidic , sour foods

    Antone else crave these things? I love these flavors. Something will be completely unappealing to me, say cottage cheese or cucumber, but if I add a heavy dose of hot sauce, or cayenne chipotle powder, or paprika, even vinegar, I will CHOW down. I don't like sweet, but love spicy and briny, tart, sour things. What dictates/drives the sweet craving in some, but the hot/spicy/sour in others?My family never ate like this- they were heat wusses with heartburn.

    I am like that. Last night...I polished off a bowl of chicharrones drowning in Red Hot. I know very salty, but sooo good. I also was a fierce Sriracha-holic. Though it does have sugar in it so I plan on not having it too often anymore, but when I make my spicy burgers with fried onions and jalapenos, that bottle is coming back out! I can eat a whole cucumber, sliced, with lemon or lime juice, sprinkling of salt and cayenne. Though in my family, I am the wuss with heat. My family has some serious spice tolerance!

        I have a total thing for sour! Lemon, grapefruit, vinegar, I don't get tired of it. I'm a bit of a wimp with hot stuff, but I do really enjoy it once in a while. Years ago I had an amazing hot sauce at a restaurant that was fiery but tasted amazing, I still crave it but can't find anything like it. I use smoked paprika all the time when cooking, and chipotle sauce and spice, but I dont consider that hot or spicy, it's just tasty

                      Oooo Yes. I have some instant soup packets of it, but I looked at the ingredients and they're like all sugar and MSG and soy and fail. X( still I nt bring myself to throw them away just yet....

                        Best chilli sauce that I've made just involved salt fermenting some chillies for about five days (actually did them with some daikon radish slices, which ended up pleasantly spicy). Then blended them with some of the fermenting liquid. Nothing else needed

                          sriracha is GOOD .. but ive tried to drastically cut down on it

                          there are several hot sauces that are missing the crap and have only a few ingredients like "vinegar (i know not great LOL), chili, salt, water" .. not perfect, but beats the ones with all of the other chemicals thrown in as well
