I love hot spicy dishes. The hotter the better. I heard the "habaneros" are pretty hot too. Do you have those?

Chili, do you have any really spicy recipes? Would really love to fix one of your spicy dishes.

ohhhhh Brother Chili, this sounds delish...I love eggplant. And you'd think being a N'awlins girl that I would love the spicy food also, but I don't. I like to taste the flavors of the food and I think when it's too spicy, you can't taste the delish taste of the dish. Just my opinion. But can't wait to try this recipe.

Thanks my Brother for sharing it,

Blessings, Cheri

Hey Chili .... This looks good for sure and I am going to try it but think I have to cut it down or I will be eating it all week ... Just me in the house.

I like a little spice but my stomach won't take too much .
