From Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds to Bold & Spicy BBQ Pork Rinds, we know how to seek heat. But our friends at The Kitchn can help you learn how to hide the sweating, the flushed face, and that signature fiery mouth. Their tips below:

1. Eat Slowly. The more capsaicin you’ve ingested, the stronger your body’s reaction will be. Eating slowly keeps a steady but tolerable amount in your body.

2. Drink Something Ice-Cold. Ice numbs the nerves in your mouth to the point where they aren’t activated by the spice.

3. Eat Something Rough. Crackers, bread, and rice give the receptors in your mouth a different kind of signal to focus on.

4. Build Your Tolerance Slowly. Learning how to handle spice takes a bit of determination. By eating a lot of increasingly hotter foods, you’ll build your tolerance gradually and come to appreciate the nuances in the different kinds of spice!
