Mexico Chile Pepper Embroidered Trucker Cap
I've always had admiration for people who can handle spicy food. Look at them keep calm as the sweat beads up on their face, I'd think, as I stayed clear of even a single pepper flake. Then I traveled to Mexico, where chile peppers have a hierarchy all their own. “No pica,” (“It's not spicy”) the waitress would assure me, even though it always did pica, and sometimes a LOT. So I was curious which pepper they considered hot? I got my answer when I tried an “arbol" (tree) chile pepper. I JUST ATE FIRE, I thought, convinced that my lips were melting off. Once I recovered, I finally understood the allure: there's a strange thrill to it - plus a lot of times it just makes the food taste better. I had a lot of fun creating my Mexican Firecracker design, which I proudly wear, because now I can say that I'm one of the brave ones!
