    Great thread idea, I LOVE spicy food too <3!

    Here is a recipe for a Korean dish called Taktoritang, it's a spicy stew with chicken, potatoes, onions, and carrots. The chicken is so tender and the potatoes soak in the flavor, be sure to serve over rice !



    Ingredients:

    • 2 pounds chicken breasts cut into large pieces
    • 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
    • 2 onions, cut into large chunks
    • 2 large potatoes, cut into large chunks


    Sauce:

    • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 2/3 cup soy sauce
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 3 Tbsp hot pepper paste (*Kochu jang)
    • 1 Tbsp red pepper flakes (*Kochu karu)


    *These last two ingredients can be found at an Asian Super Market . The red pepper flakes arent crucial, but the Kochu Jang is definitley needed!

    Time to start cooking!

    • In a bowl, mix garlic, soy sauce, water, hot pepper paste, and red pepper flakes.
    • Combine chicken, carrot, and potatoes with sauce in to a large pot over medium high heat.
    • When the water has been boiling a while, add chopped onions.
    • Reduce heat to low and simmer for 40 minutes, until sauce has thickened.

    ^^^ I'll have to try this one. My family knew this Korean lady when I was a kid, she'd bring the most kickass food to potlucks. I never knew exactly what I was eating was called, but I always made a beeline to her tupperware and proceed to scorch my mouth.

    My favorite cuisines are Thai and then Indian. *drool* I am addicted. Still trying to build a tolerance for the really over the top spicy stuff though.

    Oh, and wasabi. I absolutely love wasabi, I kind of love that headrush when I've eaten too much. Perhaps that is more strong than spicy though.

    Those horseradishy spices, the mustards and wasabi just want to shoot flame out of my nose. I wonder how that works. Once I ordered lamb vindaloo and finished it, after the first couple of bites I could hardly taste it anymore, I had an endorphin rush after I finished it. Indian is definitely in my top list of favorite cuisines.

    Yeah... love those horseradish-y flavors. I just keep going back for more. I like these honey, mustard brussel sprouts that almost blow the top of my head off, heh.

    Oh, I also love really spicy ramen. And laksa. Oh gosh *cravings*

    EDIT: Sparrow, I am going to attempt that dish for sure.

    Haha, I can do four stars at some places.

    I was in Thailand visiting family friends many many years ago... And they had a Thai woman as their personal cook. I had just taken a big bite of soup, and in the soup were these pea pods. I started chewing on like three of these pods just as the cook says "please don't eat the Thai chilis" and holds up this pea pod looking thing.

    It was about that time that the volcano erupted in my mouth.

    I think the only reason I can handle spicy foods now is because of that night. I lost taste buds and part of my will to live.
