efore you read further, we’d like to ask that you pay attention to this brief safety demonstration. The burning sensation you’ll soon be feeling after eating the spicy foods we list below is caused by an oil called capsacin, and drinking water only makes it worse. So keep some milk nearby—that’s right, milk, or other dairy products such as yogurt. Lemonade will also work, or just plain lemons. Tomato juice, too. Or rice, or bread. Okay, we’ve done our duty. Now you’re ready. Get fired up. Here are some spicy secrets:
