I'm pretty gringo... I can't handle even mild salsa!

I say spicy only because what I like is considered spicy to most people. Like to the degree that it burns their mouth and is all heat and no flavor to them. But to me, I get both flavor and heat. Probably cause I've totally progressively destroyed by heat sensing nerves. Oh well.

i'm a mild girl. i like things with a LITTLE heat but nothing that causes my mouth to be on fire for any pro-longed period of time.

The spicer the better! If you have mild salsa salsa you might as well have some ketchup! LoL Then again I eat everything with jalapenos or Tapatio.

Salsa is the only food that I like to be spicy!

medium- you want salsa to be a little spicy, but if your not into hot-hot, you don't want it to kill your tastebuds for any future flavors :)

Medium salsa is the best

I see I'm in the minority here. I like mild the best. I like it to blend with whatever I'm having it on/with, not dominate.

Medium for me too, with a little kick!

Medium is the best but I can't do super spicy.

I like it with a little bit of a kick, but not screaming hot. Otherwise, I feel like it's just heat and there's no real flavor to it.

I like my salsa to make me see stars.

I like a medium salsa that allows the flavors of multiple peppers to come out. If it's too spicy, all you get is the burn, and too mild leaves too much of a v-8 vibe. When I make salsa I tend to use 3 or more different peppers, so I like to be able to taste/feel them all!

If you're going to eat mild salsa, you might as well just sip some tomato juice. No difference.

i like the heat to slowly build, so medium...

I don't like it too spicy, so I usually go for medium. But I love a fresh made salsa with no spice sometimes.
