My dad is a pepperhead, and my mom can't handle anything over mild salsa. I guess I'm lucky to be somewhere inbetween. I prefer flavor over heat. I really like Flamin' Hot Cheetos because of that, but let's just say you shouldn't eat an entire big bag of that either. A good recipe that I had at my friend's house (I cried all through dinner but kept eating) was fried calimari Thai-style, with light breading and diced green thai chilis in the batter. Another asian chili was sprinkled on top, but that was powdered and a bright red color.
