It's funny -- I like wasabi and some spicy Thai things, but not spicy Mexican or Indian. Or not much anyway. I can handle medium salsa, and actually make a yummy chicken dish with it.

I handle Mexican spicy better than Asian spicy, with wasabi being my exception there. That just doesn't seem hot to me. And, like you, I am not a fan of curry. I don't care for the flavor.
