Chile Peppers

Top 10 Romantic Foods

The capsaicin in chile peppers causes an enticing plumping of the lips

Turn up the Heat!

Chile peppers score near the top of love’s leaderboard. Their ability to release endorphins can cause a boost in mood and surge in energy as good as a runner’s high. Chile’s heat warms the body from the inside out, and has the potential for sending an urge to tear off clothing. Capsaicin, the compound that causes chile’s burn, will make the tongue tingle with a need to be kissed and cause lips to swell with desirable plumpness. Most famously, chile was used as a key ingredient in the fortifying chocolate drink the great ruler Montezuma consumed to make his tongue dance and his pulse quicken in preparation for his daily visit to his beautiful concubines.
