I get the feeling that spicy food isn't big there. Is this true?

It's pretty bland compared with Mexican food but PR cuisine does use spices.

I found this to be true. I used to bring my hot spicy needs with me from CA.

Is like any type of nationality, some Prs like spicy food while others don't.

some do, some don't. I would say the use of many spices is prevalent...however, the heat (spicy) on the food is not much.

While PR food is not on the HOT side, it is very well spiced. And even though a household may not cook very hot there is not a PR kitchen table that doesn't have a bottle of Pique curing on it... the one with the greenish yellow and red Ajies curing inside. It's the same bottle and the contents is just replenished with fresh pickling.

Hot Pickled Peppers, it's not Hot Sauce. It's Pique - pee'-keh!

The cook knows that those who don't like it hot can eat with assurance and those that do can do all the sweating.

Man, I could use a nice big bowl of Sopa de Gandules right about now. I like to use Beef Ribs.

after 10 yrs of coming to PR we finally moved here 3 months ago. I can tell you that in Aguadilla spicy food is not on any menu around here. I have a friend that owns a pizza place and i was trying to get him to use jalapenos on his pizza. i bought them ( a large can from Sams) and so far i am the only person that orders them on my pizza.
