Thanks, NMLady! I always wonder about "authentic" places to eat because, living in Minnesota, we're pretty much as far away from anything "authentic" in other cultures as you can get. Cheers!
Haha! That gave me a laugh--Irish and French. :-) Then again, I'm of German descent (from way, WAY back) and I, too, suspected that authentic Mexican wasn't done right here in the US.
I think that you are correct--even when eating at the same table with someone from a "spicier" culture, I think when we order the same thing their food is hotter. (I'm a silly little white American).
Wow! 150 kinds of chili peppers! I had no idea there were THAT many varieties. Cool! Or, Hot! as you say--depending on the particular pepper. (No, ketchup isn't on my spectrum of "spicy"). I'll have to experiment with different peppers and recipes!
don't forget pasilla it's one of the sweetest ones Check out the Scoville chart Wikipeida
Thanks again, bri36! I'll do just that.
