    Острое

    «Мама не любит острые перцы, а я острое люблю.»

    Это звучит нормально?

    I would use singular:

    Мама не любит острый перец, а я острое люблю.

    Перцы is masculine plural, so острый should be masculine plural too (or singular if you like just a single pepper), but not neuter.

    What?.....
    "Острое" (neuter) at the end of the sentence is correct, and in the first part of the sentence it is masculine plural. (But as Боб Уайтман said, it should be singular).
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Please explain why it should be neuter?

    Sometimes one uses the neuter singular adjectival form as an abstract noun. In this case it means something like "spicy stuff" or "spicy food". I've heard «сладкое» and «солёное» used the same way for "sweet stuff" and "pickled stuff".

    Yes, it's abstract, collective.

    Есть подобное: «Меня это вскрыло».
    «И всё, что сейчас происходит внутре — тоже является частью вселенной».
