Whether you love it or hate it, spicy food is extremely popular - so much so that it's enjoyed ALL OVER the world!
China's Sinchuan region is known for their sizzling mapo tofu.
Thailand's unassuming chili pepper might be small, but it packs some SERIOUS heat.
India's vindaloo doesn't look that red, but it's the usually hottest dish on the menu.
Ethiopia's doro wat is chicken, hard-boiled eggs, and a heavy portion of 'berbere' - a seasoning made of pulverized red chilis.
Mexico's incorporation of fresh and uncooked chilis definitely ups their spice factor, especially in this chilate de pollo soup.
