Miami's Ten Spiciest Dishes: Murg Vindaloo, "Salsa of Life" and Spicy Conch Salad
T-Mex doesn't do taco sauce like most Mexican eateries. The beef is marinated in a secret blend of spices. Flavors mild, medium and hot are varying degrees of spicy tomato based taco sauce. But the serious "sauce" is actually shaved jalapeno peppers. Their "stupid sauce" is shaved habanero peppers and would be painfully unenjoyable if it weren't for how good the taco loco ($4.25-$6.25) tastes. Brave diners get the hot flavor sauce for its tomato-based texture and just throw the stupid sauce shaved habaneros in it.

Wonder-chef Juan Chipoco isn't shy about heating up his dishes with some spice at either of his two very successful eateries downtown. At CVI.CHE 105, the spiciest dish on the menu is the Ceviche Anconero ($12.95), prepared using eight ounces of corvina fish cut in squares, the juice from six whole limes, minced garlic, Peruvian Aji limo, diced fresh cilantro, rocoto pepper and red onion. Steam and peeled sweet potatoes, roasted corn and Peruvian white corn are served on the side. E-mail the author for the full recipe.
