If you ask a Mexican person if the food (salsa) is hot or not.
DO NOT TRUST THEM if they sayhe NO. If t say YES count on it being burning hot.
I like spicy food, but with moderation. Just had a wonderful eggsandwich with a "non-spicy" salsa. It tasted good, but I'm happy that I was suspicious and only took a little of the salsa onto my sandwich.
