Does anyone know why a person's taste buds might change?
I have never ever been able to handle hot spicy foods or sauces. I mean Taco Mild sauce was hot for me. And being the proud Chicana that I am I got a lot of shit from people because I couldn't handle the hot stuff.
Then one day we were out eating and the nachos came with a little cup of sliced jalapenos. I stared at Joey while he ate some. (I stare at him a lot so he is use to it) I asked him
"Are those like really hot?"
I got the standard "Not really" answer from my oh so talkative husband of mine. Maybe it was all those times I have told The Phi "Try it, you might like it" but something made me want to try them. So I did and yes they were hot but they were also oh so good. Over 31 years I finally liked the hot stuff.
I didn't stop with the jalapeno in the cup. The next time we went out to Mexican food I piled on the green hot sauce on my chips. And I finally understand the love for the flaming hot cheetos.
A whole new world of flavor has been open up to me.
Now excuse me while I drown my dinner in El Pato sauce.

OMG, this happened to me too!! I use to not be able to stand spicy foods, and being portuguese, not really a good thing!!! Then I got pregnant with Aubrey and had to put jalapenos on EVERYTHING!!!ReplyDelete
OMG! I also get that from my friends and then I got the erge to make some salsa, I don't know what got into me. I like dip my chips in the juice when we go out and that's it. Well, I had to try the salsa that I made and well, I think I am past it too. I can now eat salsa and the hot stuff, not super duper hot, but everyone else says my salsa was hot and I was able to eat it. I am trying to make the hottest salsa ever. So you sister and luis are the test tasters of my experiment...so far I seem to put too much silantro. Well, I am not giving up and Luis doesnt' mind because I am sure he want that salsa coming even Ouie. Everytime I send her some they taste test and she tell me her opinion and say, "but we will keep it, it is still good." lol Salsa it actually very tasty. Yay, I am a true Mexican after all...lol...congratulations to you too Liz.... :-)ReplyDelete

They are supposed to change every 7 years. When I was pregnant with Siobhan I started loving hot stuff. Sure that stick didn't turn blue?ReplyDelete
Same here.... two years ago I developed a permanent craving for spice...I love Frank's hot sauce.ReplyDelete
In fact my sister posted a blog about me and my crazy hot spicy love a few months back. Apparently, I over did it at lunch with her one day... and I made a scene... I will have to tell you the story.
I've experienced that too. Before my mid-20s I was all about the mild taco sauce and never had any peppers unless it was a chile relleno. I can stand more now.ReplyDelete
