Why can't Mexicans handle spicy food?
The truth is, we Mexicans can't handle spicy food. We can only handle oily, greasy, meaty food that tastes like dirt.
The reason why we add onions and cilantro to our tacos is because we wanna make our meals slightly more refined and vegetable-y.
seriously OP. i never really knew any mexican people too well until i started at my current job.
>make some homemade salsa
>make a super mild batch
>the two hispanic women i work with say it's too spicy and can't handle it
>their noses were running and they had to drink a bunch of water
>mfw i normally add a shit ton of habaneros after running them through the food processor
Sounds like you had a shitty mom
Cilantro is a backbone flavor in Mexican food and pussies who can't eat it straight are deprived of excellent foods
Same goes for the fucking plebs who can't handle a bit of raw onion
I'm hispanic and my mom practically raised me on spicy food so much so that I have a higher tolerance than her.
>tfw once ate a Carolina Reaper
>everything going good
>friend goes to wipe his mouth
>puts napkin back on other napkins
>sweating so get napkins
>didn't see he did this
>get pepper oil in eye
literally the only problem I've ever had with spicy food also when people say
>bro your asshole is going to blow chunks
>tfw don't blow chunks convince them to have some and see them later pooping their souls out
Why do Americans like meme hot sauce so much? Spiciness is supposed to complement foods, not be the center piece.
It's the difference between adding salt to your food and eating a fistful of salt.
There's this authentic mexican place around where I live (I know it's authentic because it's cheap and constantly full of mexicans) and they have these bowls of peppers and onions that sit in this soy sauce like liquid all day (top bowl in left picture)
That shit is so spicy it will make your ears hurt. A friend of mine flew too close to the sun and almost passed out from the spice.
I've never seen it done, but surely someone does.
Shit like this is partially ironic humor in our culture over here it's not serious at all they're usually gifts I have never seen someone just whip that out and put it on there food in public ever.
i have a turbocringe autistic friend who asks for it every single time we go out to eat
