"Confidence comes from not always being right but not fearing to be wrong!"



  Yes, I am loyal to my Tapatio sauce because he was my first sauce-Zas! Tapatio is affordable, goes a long way and comes easy.  Sometimes, however I don’t want easy!  I want hard, and prefer to be challenged, feel wild, fearless, and strong.  A good hard Chile does it for me!  How awesome is to bite a hard one and have that sensation of that eternal hell in your mouth? “Que no?!” A Chile so hot that its steam gushes out along with your tears and snot and…

…you know?

I know! That’s crazy right?  But that’s the way I was raised.  This is the way I was loved.  “Con mucho Chile” My dad once ate around 80 jalapenos just because it was a cheap way to entertain me and my siblings.   “Quieren que coma otro?” he would ask, and we would jump up and down, clapping, cheering, and scream “Siiiiiiii…”  I remember him chewing and sweating as we all chanted “otro, otro, otro…” Pobresa inspired creative Chile improvisation. You can imagine my poor dad that day after?! 

So I'm looking for a good Chile, and I'll tell you all about that later!
