A doctor’s visit reveals that an ache you have been experiencing was not due to a jogging injury, but because you have arthritis. Although your doctor says that staying active might prevent further deterioration of your joints, the constant pain is about to make you almost immobile.

As if that isn’t bad news enough, the available topical treatments commercially sold for arthritic pain have an array of side effects that include dizziness, upset stomach, and blurred vision; a list of ailments you do not want to add to your condition. 

After discussing with your doctor,  friends, and the blogosphere, you discover the soothing relief of hot peppers. Yes, I said hot peppers. Did you know that the active component in peppers (what makes them hot) is capsaicin? And pharmacies even sell it over the counter for pain relief? The heat from the capsaicin tricks the brain into ignoring pain signals. Don’t worry, it’s not a terrible heat, more like the numbing from a handful of Hot Tamales.

Here are our favorite three recipes with a high capsaicin content. You might need some gloves to prepare them.
