Did you know that hot sauce has been around since the 1800's? Hot sauce mania is a craze that is here to stay. With over a 1000 varieties and its use in many dishes around the world the chili pepper is an important spice. Some of these hot sauces are tried and true and have been around for a very long time and then there are ones with some very unique names in the "hall of flames"...

Capsaicinoids are the chemicals responsible for the "hot" taste of chili peppers. They are fat soluble and therefore drinking water is useless for counteracting the burn. The most effective way to relieve the burning sensation in your mouth is with dairy products, such as milk and yogurt. I also find that eating rice helps cut the burn as well. By all means, don't rub your eyes or any other open bodily surfaces if you have hot sauce or chilis on your hands. Hot sauces have heat but most important factor is the taste and each one is unique.
My teenagers love their chicken wings hot. I mean screaming hot!!!! The Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant has the very extreme Blazin hot wings that comes with a dietary warning (keep away from eyes, pets and children) and their very sweet and tangy BBQ sauce wings and everything in between. I remember the first time we went to Buffalo Wild Wings and my eldest teenager ordered the "BLAZIN" wings for his birthday. He had a ring of sweat on his forehead, his face was glowing and lips were sweltering and he was smiling ear to ear with a good burn. I on the other hand can't handle really hot foods so I enjoy the sweet and mild sauces.
Have you ever been to a "Buffalo Wild Wings" restaurant? My eldest teenager is a huge fan of this restaurant.
