  1. I’m Indian. None of those options even come close to how spicy our food can be! :)

  2. Chile rellenos! My aunt makes them every year right before Christmas – we have a Mexican Night – and it’s insanely delicious. Depending on the chile – it can be EXTREMELY hot – hot enough to make your eyes tear.

  3. I can’t wait to see what the result is because I love very spicy food. I put hot sauce on just about everything. However, I see hot wings chicken wings in hot sauce is currently in the lead…but I have had some pretty spicy curry dishes that weren’t even labeled the hottest and spiciest on the menu and they were definitely hotter than any chicken wings I’ve ever had. I think it depends on the sauce the wings are cooked in. But anywho, can’t wait for the votes.

  4. Honestly all of the these dishes aren’t BLAZING hot to me…I LOVE hot and spicy food, in fact I’d prefer all my dishes to be on the hot and spicy side…love me some chinese, thai, and indian food :-) The hottest food I ever ate was A PIECE of chicken with a hot sauce called Da Bomb (bought from Buc-ees) on it. I kid you not, I put a DAB of the sauce on there and I was chugging two big Fuji water bottles withing 15 minutes and brushing my teeth over and over again. LOL! It was CRAZY!

  5. Theres a Dim Sum place in Newport Beach we had lunch at…..I put chile oil in my soup and had an allergic reaction….my throat closed up….it was horrible….now I totally stay away pure pure chile things, but can still have foods that are a little spicy. YIKES, that was scary though.
