Picante means spicy hot. To discover if a dish is picante ask, "¿Es picante?" The waiter may reply, "No es picante" (It isn't hot), or "Es picante" (It is hot) with a great big nod. Or the reply may be "No se pica", meaning it won't burn you with its spicy taste. He might also say, "Se pica un poco", meaning "It's a little spicy hot" or has a bite. "No pica mucho" means "It's not very hot".
