Thats the spice from pepper expert Terry Berke, who says tacos laced with pickled jalapenos or spicy Serrano are all the rage this year and make a hot addition to any Cinco de Mayo bash.
Berke says hotheads can impress people with their high tolerance by eating peppers raw, but fakers trying to save face can sweat it out by cooking their peppers before taking a bite.
Explains Berke: Cooking the peppers helps make the heat levels go down and easier for people to eat.
However, he says if someone does slip an uninvited raw pepper into someones meal, its best to pass on the tequila and go straight for a tall glass of milk until things cool down.
