I am baffled. Is the reason you dislike chopping onions by hand because they cause a mild irritaion to your eyes? If so, why eat stupidly hot dishes?


It's not only that, it's also the chopping is a nuisance.

The difference is that the taste of hot foods is pleasant, while onions burning your eyes is not. The two sensations don't have much in common.

Another question. What is the difference between cayenne pepper and chile powder? I think a difference exists but on reading how the spices are made they sound the same.


Cayenne pepper contains only ground cayenne pepper, while what's called 'chili powder' in the US is a spice mix which also includes other things, like cumin, garlic and oregano. It's nowhere near as hot as straightup cayenne pepper. Trust me.
