Szechwan peppercorns: Ideas for cooking with, and does anyone think they're addictive?

Chowpatty | | Jan 12, 2007 03:30 AM

I bought a large jar of Szechwan peppercorns -- I'm not sure why, since I don't cook complicated Chinese dishes very often. I made some very intriguing ma po tofu, but what else would be tasty and not require arcane Chinese techniques? Also, does anyone else feel like when they eat a dish with these little guys, like they can't stop eating it? It's not because the dish is so yummy, it's like your mouth requires you to keep getting that chilling tingle.
