Just to point out, that liberal opponent of this site says chiles can be eaten raw. Moreover, I've eaten them before a: raw and b: unpeeled. Then again, I'm a sysop, so clearly I'm more than human... :-P ColinRtalk 02:31, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
I call way have you consumed a raw unpeeled Hatch green chile and LIKED it. Tmtoulouse 02:33, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
  • sigh* Now I am getting home sick. Tmtoulouse 02:44, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
Hey now, I never said I liked eating the raw, unpeeled chile or even enjoyed the experience in any way. Unfortunately, I can't say what variety of chile it was, but it was muy caliente. ColinRtalk 02:50, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
Yea, okay its POSSIBLE to do it. One of the coming of age rights of passage for most male children in the state is to consume a completely raw unpeeled chile seeds and all. When being prepared people usually wear very thick gloves because the skin and seeds can irritate the skin and cause a terrible burning and itching sensation. You get that in your mouth and throat if you eat it. The oil that causes this pain is fairly sticky, and a fun joke to play, atleast as a kid, is to get a punch on a glove and then go rub someones back with it where they can't reach. However, usually karma gets you back and you forget and wipe your face, nose eyes, or scratch another unmentionable place and well..there you go. Tmtoulouse 02:53, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
Yeah, worst mistake with capsaicin was eating some incredibly hot wings (make your mouth go numb kind) and then going to the bathroom. I even washed my hands really well before, but it didn't help. Not fun... ColinRtalk 02:58, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
Speaking of bathroom, one of the traits of chile I failed to mention in the article.........well I will just let the colloquialism of my home town say it all "Good Chile burns just as much coming out as going in!"Tmtoulouse 03:02, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
