Death by Chili - A Recipe of Fire and Brimstone
|A killer, hot chili. The recipe written from the Devil himself.|
That's sort of makes eating chili an extreme sport. Almost every news article I could find suggests the individual was in perfect health prior to consuming the chili. In fact capsaicin, the ingredient in peppers that make them hot, is a known neurotoxin which under the right conditions effects the nervous system of the "victim" and causes asphyxiation. In short, in the right amounts, and depending on a person's susceptibility, you could die by making this recipe.
Personally I loved this recipe, and at least in the short term, I continue to be alive. My lips are however on fire, my stomach tingles, and no doubt the next twenty-four hours will be shaky. All the flavors in this chili recipe have been upped exponentially. It's nuclear, it's greasy, and it's very wild. It's a recipe for fire and brimstone, and Hell on Earth. The question is, can you handle it?
