That can't end well.

I think I can't taste my beer as well anymore because of Sriracha overuse. And sambal oelek. And Louisiana hot sauce. And salsa. And red pepper flakes. And pepperoncini. And other chiles.

I never used to be into spicy heat. I liked the flavors, just not the heat itself. But around 5 years ago it began to appeal to me. The endorphin high, man.

^^ What he said. I'm addicted to sriracha. I don't care for Louisiana Hot Sauce or Tabasco as much any more because I found sriracha. Here in Louisiana, Tabasco is probably the most common hot sauce (but it's definitely not the hottest). Sriracha is the hottest I've tried.

omg, I wanted to order the exact same sauce 1 year ago. It was either that (800k SHU ?) or this one 10 Minute Burn (7.3 M SHU ??). I just changed my mind at the last minute.

Tabasco should have like 3,500+ SHU while Sriracha doesn't seem to go over 2,500. I've never tried Sriracha so I can't tell which one is hottest :P Sriracha is just hard to find here.

Heh, coincidentally I bought a bottle of Sriracha for the first time the other day. Don't really find it to be that hot though.

This is the Louisiana brand I use, if it wasn't obvious: http://www.louisianapepper.com/

I find it has more and better flavor than Tabasco, which I find a little flat and bitter. Louisiana brand is a little sweeter, rounder. It's not quite as hot, but that just means I can add more. :D

I use that and Sriracha for different things, though, not one replacing the other. Basically, what's cuisine-appropriate, usually. Used some Louisiana hot sauce just last night in some red beans and rice with spinach and tomatoes.

With Mezzetta pickled sweet cherry peppers and golden peperoncini on the side. :D And a mixed greens salad with a greek-style vinaigrette. And multigrain whole wheat toast (would prefer some sort of cracker, but don't have any at the moment).

I also added Bragg's nutritional yeast, Earth Balance "butter," and a splash of almond milk to the beans and rice for some BS cheesiness. :P

And a Bell's Amber Ale. :stubble:

Whoa, whoa, settle down there. I'm not much of a cook. Anything more than 5 ingredients and it will be a disaster.

Im a huge fan of hot sauce and various peppers. If you feel like growing your own fire, I can send you some good seeds, or if you be skeered of me knowing how to mail stuff to you, I can give you good advice. My current project is naga jolokias.

Heh, I can't say I've seen any other brands of "Louisana Hot Sauce"! I'm definitely a fan of it, I knew what you were talking about :)

Absolutely! I completely agree with your assessment of Tabasco. I have never been a large fan of it.

Actually, it reminds me of something that is a pet peeve of mine. National media is all about broadcasting New Orleans, Louisiana as a "cajun yum yum yum"-fest because they have "some real, authentic southern cookin'!"

When, in reality, that's horse shit. I'm from Southwest Louisiana (and I'm from a Cajun heritage) and the food in New Orleans is bland and horrific. I'd have to really search New Orleans to find a decent restaurant serving authentic, delicious, spicy Cajun food. My grandmother is a fantastic cook and I suppose I'm just naturally inclined to compare everyone's cooking to hers. Heh, I guess it's really not fair. Oh well.

Wait, you eat red beans and rice? I'm convinced you're from relatively nearby. Haha. At least, somewhere close enough to know what Popeyes is!

You understand science and math, and do the art. By all rights you ought to be a decent cook. You probably just need someone to teach you some basic principles and technique.

I'm from Louisville. People eat red beans and rice all over the place. There are apparently 3 Popeyes locations here, but obviously KFC dominates. We're basically vegan, though, and fast food is muck anyway, so....

I actually dig that Popeye's spicy red beans and rice. Not even ashamed.
