Can you handle these spicy food challenges across the USA?

Those who seek out spicy food challenges just to be seen sweating and cursing in public are a brave breed indeed. Even if you think spicy food is good for you (or that it makes the best hangover food), we draw the line at crying in a crowded restaurant. But for those of you who seek out the thrill of devouring the spiciest dishes in the USA (and maybe having your photo posted on a wall in celebration), this list is what you need to complete your ghost pepper-fueled dreams. From searing Nashville hot chicken to fiery Sri Lankan curry, these are the most tongue-tingling, sweat-inducing spicy food challenges in the United States. Have a glass of whole milk at the ready.  RECOMMENDED: Guide to the ultimate foodie adventures across the USA
