I am kind of a chicken (no pun intended) when it comes to chili and hot food. My hubby is used to having every little thing with chili. If the food is not prepared with at least 2 fresh chilies he gets kind of irritated. I have always been the safe one. I will have hot chutney – and that is where I draw my line.
So being married to a man that loves chili was quite challenging. The first time he cooked for me, he added like half a chili in his dish.
I nearly died.
I swear I was close to heart palpitations – sucking up liters of water, red nosed and teary eyed, I had to at least try and finish the food. I really didn’t want to disappoint him. Sadly to say – he soon found out about my dislike for hot food, and so our journey to ‘train my taste buds’ began.
