Spicy Burns Fat

According to Monsieur Harold McGee, capsaicin, the pungent chemical secreted by cells in our beloved jalapeno and other chilis that makes everything so muy e-spicy, increases our metabolic rate, so we burn more energy aka fat!! It also might trigger the brain to say we ain’t so hungry.  All in all, extra hot sauce please!
