** ''The Compleat Discworld Atlas'' mentions the Vanglemesht Red Python Chilli. A single pepper could flavour five hundred pots of beans, as long as everyone liked them spicy. It is, of course, an ingredient in Wow-Wow Sauce.

* This is what happens when Literature/AbleTeam try eating the food in Sri Lanka. It's even worse that night when the food comes out again, described by one team member as 'napalm shits'. Ironically that saves their lives, as a hit team tries to kill them when they're asleep in their beds, only to find all three awake and annoyed on the toilet.

* In Janet Kagan's Franchise/StarTrek novel ''Uhura's Song'', the catlike Eeaiouans use the berry of a native bush as a spice. They call it a "tailkinker" and a favorite prank is to slip a few of the fresh berries into a dish rather than the processed version. Think getting something you think contains a bit of red chili flakes but instead has whole Sichuan peppers in it. Yeah, like that.

** The curry Susan tastes in ''Discworld/SoulMusic'' causes the ''air'' to explode after she throws it away.
*** Um, no it doesn't. She just has a taste of it and throws it away.

* ''Literature/ChakonaSpace'' features the ''Tales of the Folly'' series. The ''Folly's'' rabbit chef likes to add this kind of spice to meals when she thinks her captain or fellow crewmwmbers aren't paying attention to her culinary efforts. She has learned to tighten up her aim after a group she wasn't targeting ate the ''spiced up'' food she left out for the captain, who skipped a meal.
** She put four drops of a rare, Caitian spice into a half-full pot of stew when a single drop would have been sufficient for a full pot.

* Hilariously [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in Volume One of ''Literature/TheFirstDwarfKing''. Jani takes Eustathios to a mead hall called ''Blazing Beers''.[[note]]No, the title is ''NOT'' a pun based on this trope; it's purely coincidental -- the name comes from the huge bonfire in the middle of the hall, which continually belches off blinding smoke.[[/note]] The owner finds out that Eustathios [[ElvesVsDwarves is an elf]]. He then puts hot pepper in Eustathios' drink, and instructs Jani to give it to him without letting him know what's in it, which Jani does. [[InsultBackfire Unfortunately for the dwarves]], [[spoiler: Eustathios ''likes'' it]].
