I was hoping someone would have a good spicy substitute to peppers. I love salsa, well I should say I loved salsa, but now can't eat bell or any type of pepper. Any suggestions to spice up my food? I also unfortunately have to stay away from black pepper too. I have tried Grains of Paradice as a black pepper substitute but I really don't think it tastes anything like pepper. My allergist said that eating a pickeled product may not effect me like the fresh or cooked would but I'm nervous to try it. I haven't had an ana. reaction to peppers but I don't want to tempt fate anymore by just trying it. Thanks!

Some spices that don't contain capsicum but do give heat are:
Horseradish
Wasabi
Cinnamon
Ginger
Mustard
I'm not sure of any recipes...maybe others will post some.

I never would have thought of cinnamon.

I did try wasabi in a black bean burger and it wasn't too bad. It's not the same heat as red peppers but it's close. I also found Sichuan. It's the spice commonly misspelled as szechuan. It's a berry and not at all related to peppers or black pepper! Also, pink peppercorns are not in the pepper tree family either. I found William Sonoma to carry a ton of spices and they label all their blends too. I will have to try cinnamon, I only associate that with pumpkin pies and lattes. :)
