When I was dining at El Pescador in Costa Rica, the waiter placed a jar on the table and said, "chilero." It was a container of small red chile peppers. I asked him how hot they were, and he simply replied, "yes hot." Always an adventurous eater, I decided to taste one to determine their spiciness. I tried to get my sister and dad to eat one with me, but both refused. How about you?
