Some recent studies (2014 and 2015) by Byrnes and Hayes suggest that love for spicy food (cayenne pepper) is associated with sensation seeking (love of exploring, etc.) and sensitivity to rewards (planning how to get rewards). This certainly hits the mark in my case. I've always love spicy food to excess and have also always pursued novel experiences.
