If you eat enough super hot stuff, you can get the equivalent of a runner's high.

If you go to Colorado, you can just get high.

What if I only use a little bit - enough for a "zing" but not enough for a full-on overload? And what if I only put it on certain foods? Does that mean I'm only kind of a massochist? Seriously, one bottle of that stuff can last months in my place.

Sriracha isn't really all that hot. It has some great flavor though.

Who thinks that stuff is hot?  It's like mildly spicy ketchup.

I'm not one of those "I eat things dipped in pure capsaicin while having pepper spray blasted into my face by that UC Davis police guy, anything else isn't adequately hot" guys, but sriracha isn't hot enough to cause pain.

Also, good job discovering this mysterious "people who like spicy food thing", Moonie-owned wire service.

Don't you just get weary of 'that' guy? What good is a food product if it lights your ass up the next day?

I love Sriracha because it's tasty and no bum flames.

My girl and I use it in our crock pot chicken taco soup; it adds a nice zing to it.
 
2014-02-25 03:34:58 PM  
Damn right, hurts so good.

May have overdone it at Subway last week, though. Jalapeno bread, steak, pepperjack cheese, more jalapenos, sriracha sauce. It was a pleasant lunch followed by a less pleasant afternoon.

It is not hot unless you find yourself screaming on the toilet a day later.

borg: Sriracha is a product not a brand name There are better sriracha's out there than David Tran's.


That makes sense to me now. All the siracha I've had has tasted like watery ketchup and black pepper and barely as hot as Tabasco but it is listed as hotter.
Must be like the supposed habenero sauces you can get at restaurants, they dilute it so much its only a tad spicier than Tabasco.
So where can you get the real stuff?

That. It's flavourful, great in soup and on pizza but there's much hotter stuff in my house for chilli and various other dishes. To each their own, my wife's sister will tear up on food that I find mild and I have to be really careful when she comes over for dinner, it's what you've grown accustomed to.

You can always make your own. It doesn't have that many ingredients, and it's not hard.

If I want flavor, it's all about Frank's Red Hot.   There is no real heat anymore, all vinegary deliciousness.

If I want heat, its definitely from  Ghost Pepper Flakes.  Every.  Day.  Problem is with the dried flakes, if it doesn't have a fluid to spread the heat around, you can eat a meal while barely tasting them.

Never understood people who make this argument. Hell I eat habanerosand ghost peppers and they NEVER do a thing to my ass.

I was an early adopter, and liked Sriracha for its taste and bootstrappy origins in Cali and of course, the glue bottle.  What really made it work was its consistency.  Most hot sauces run and are very watery.  Sriracha dispenses like a true bottled condiment.  It sticks, it works, and it's good.

Shudder to think I could be deemed a hipster.

Cholula has a sauce for everything:
Chili Garlic:  Good all around
Chili Lime: Good on Seafood
Chipotle: Good with tex-mex, chili, etc.
etc.

/collect them all!
 
2014-02-25 03:44:54 PM  
Wait, we are talking about the stuff that comes in the bottle with rooster on the side and is slightly more tangy than ketchup?  That's not hot sauce, not even close.
 
2014-02-25 03:45:10 PM  
Capsaicin is a tissue irritant, basically a poison.  The body interprets capsaicin poisoning the same way it interprets burning, which is why in heavy doses it can cause blindness and "chemical burning" of the skin.  In very low doses it still irritates the mucous membranes, which is why your eyes water, your nose runs, and your tongue burns when you eat foods containing it.

A side-effect off the irritation to your tongue is that your taste receptors on it become more sensitive.  This is why people like the stuff--despite the pain, it makes food taste better.
 
2014-02-25 03:45:19 PM  
Which hot sauce I use depends a lot on the situation and my mood. Sriracha is great on Asian dishes, but I'd rather use Cholula or El Yucateco for Mexican dishes, or Tabasco, Frank's, or Louisiana for general use.

El Yucateco is especially good when you're dealing with a cold and need to clear your sinuses out.

If you can get a hold of Thai shrimp paste, your mouth will burn. Whenever we cook with it I have to open the window or I will have to use a rescue inhaler.

BS, I'm the whitest white dude that ever whited.  My albedo is in the 90s.  It's still mild to me, I just like it because it's garlicky.

I usually only keep the general cholula and the garlic on hand.  Great on pizza, tacos, eggs.

Funny thing is many of the brands that are actually popular in Thailand, like Siraja Panich, are less spicy than the Huy Fong version. The newer spicier Thai Sriracha sauces like Polar are trying to ape the sucess of Huy Fong and taste a lot closer to what Americans have come to expect.
