Spicy tomatoes are created by using a tomato with a bowl when the player has a knife in their inventory, and using spice or gnome spice on the bowl of chopped tomatoes. When creating spicy tomatoes only spice is needed to add to the bottom most chopped tomato, as the spice is actually added to the the closest tomato to the first inventory slot. They can then be used on a set box trap as bait for the Hunter skill. They may also be eaten.

Spicy chopped tomatoes are a very uncommon item in RuneScape. They are rarely made due to their complexity, but they are intended to be used as bait for chinchompas found in the Piscatoris Hunter area. It is not recommended to use bait; in fact, not using bait is much faster and does not require constant bank trips.
