(Calgary Sun)   Some people are outraged that a pizza that has 90 slices of jalapeño-infused pepperoni topped with diced jalapeño peppers is being called "La Chingona" or translated most politely as "badass." I'd be more worried what it does to diners' colons   ( calgarysun.com) divider line

You could use cheese to moderate the burn of the peppers and who doesn't like cheese except asians?

70Ford: iron_city_ap: lack of warmth: iron_city_ap: I love how people only associate jalapenos with hot. The actual flavor is amaze balls if you take away the seeds/meat (the white stuff on the inside). For example, jalapeno cornbread is unreal. All it is, is just like it sounds. Cornbread with diced jalapenjos mixed into the batter. No heat at all.

I noticed 'No heat' jalapeños in jars in the grocery store, so that's an option.  I also like fresh jalapeños in my salads, and I very much agree with the jalapeño cornbread as I sometimes make some for chili.

Screw the 'no heat' ones. I prefer to split my own and 'gut' them with a grapefruit spoon. I like the body of them to be fresh and crisp as opposed to canned/jarred ones, which tend to be a little mushy. It's 5 minutes of work that I think is well worth it.

Jalapeño cornbread and chili is like peanut butter and chocolate .
Because peanut butter and chocolate make you make weird faces on the toilet the next day.


Hot food only hurts you if you're not used to it. No burn here.

C18H27NO3: CygnusDarius: /Besides, most of those hot sauces have a shiat-ton of vinegar

or extract.  Do what I do, peppers for everything. Actual peppers, but you don't just have heat for the sake of heat.
Peppers pair with food as much as a condiment or wine, or a specific beer.
There are a multitude of foods that do well with jalapeno, or serrano, or even poblano and a multitude that would simply fail with those choices.  Some things just scream for the fruitiness of habanero, savina, bhuts, and the like.
I don't quite get the article. Are the people saying that is a naughty word you dirty bird and you should feel bad? If so, then fark off.


I think it's just fake outrage to promote a product.  That's what I'm going with anyway.

It probably would taste good, but once it gets past your stomach, its like hot lava running through your guts.  Only to erupt into fire for the last part.   No I will not have one of those.

If even that. I'm just saying that when you take away the heat , they have an amazing flavor.

I've had some (with full heat) that are mild at best, and others (usually home grown) that are Satan's anus caliber hot.

Danger Avoid Death: CygnusDarius: TomD9938: charlesmartel11235: I can't eat pizza unless it's drowned in red pepper flakes

A pizza doesn't need anything spicier on it than mushrooms (maybe anchovies) and nothing's worse than some over the top sauce that's hot for the sake of being hot.


/ of Swedish heritage

Funny enough, despite me being Mexican, I have a dislike for 'HOT FARKING SAUCE' because there's really no reason to have a spicy sauce if it doesn't taste good. A good hot sauce has to bring both flavor and heat to the plate, not just the heat.

/Besides, most of those hot sauces have a shiat-ton of vinegar
//For speed

I agree. My current favorite option, which supplies ample heat and a great flavor, is this:

We blend those up with mayo for a kickass chipotle mayo.  Goes well on everything!

Only verbs get conjugated and we're talking about the noun forms here, but you're looking for "el chingón".

FTA: The "Chingona" pizza, which goes on sale on March 31, has 90 slices of jalapeño-infused pepperoni topped with diced jalapeño peppers.

Years ago when I worked at a company that manufactured modular enclosure systems for electronic equipment, I knew a guy who worked in the engineering department who had a father that gave him peppers from his garden in Mexico.  He told me that these peppers were so hot, even he had difficulties eating foods laced with the peppers without causing himself gastric injury, and he was accustomed to eating all kinds of spicy foods.

I said to him, "Let me have a couple of those peppers.  My wife loves hot peppers."  So he gave me a couple and I took them home to Mrs. Xerox.

"Try these peppers, dear," I said to her.  "They'll burn your tongue off."

Mrs. Xerox bit the pepper, chewed it for a bit, and said, "Yeah.  It's got a little kick.  Does your friend have any peppers that are hotter than this?"

My wife would eat a slice of that pizza and it would be like a York peppermint patty to her.

"Hot" is a matter of perspective and therefore a meaningless descriptor.

Danger Avoid Death: chitownmike: cyberspacedout: akuma976: pinche gringo's need to calm down

Over here in Los Angeles, there's a restaurant called Pinches Tacos. They've got 4 locations, so I don't think they're too worried about the name causing complaints.

Then there's the New Haven, CT restaurant named C.O. Jones. It got its share of controversy back when it opened.

C. O. Jones? Who's offered by that? Why?

Some people are just too easily offernded.

They make a great omelette filling if you're looking for a spicy breakfast.  Mash them (like you said) and mix it with diced onions, green peppers and ham and it's a slightly more southern Western omelette.  The only downside is that you have to use a separate pan to soften them up - they stick like a motherfarker even on non-stick pans, and the salt weakens the eggs before they're cooked.

In this case it's chingona because la comida (food) is feminine and "la comida chingona" is "the f*ckin bad-ass food" if you must be grammatically correct about your f*ckin bad-ass pizza.

I expect it offers pizza tailored to a Mexican palate. I was in a Japanese pizza restaurant in San Francisco that serves pizza to Japanese tastes and it was quite peculiar. I honestly don't recall if they had cheese or not as I couldn't get past toppings such as tuna and squid ink to be bothered.
