Can you tell we've been eating lots of corn this summer? I was very excited about this health-conscious Chilled Corn and Crab Salad (recipe here) from Martha Stewart Living magazine. It was so spicy it was basically inedible....I couldn't even feed it to Sadie!
The culprit? The super-spicy red Thai chile that the recipe called for. Even without the seeds, this little beast made my eyes water uncontrollably.
The lesson? Always be conscious of a recipe calling for hot peppers, even if just a jalapeno.
