    .. foods which has cumin also an ingredient that is combined with with peppers and oregano and other spices for Mexican flavors.

    Early Europeans liked spicy food:
    And wasabi from the farther east

    Seems like in some cases the farther from cold the spicier the menu
    So glad refrigeration wasn't invented too soon or we might not have as delicious spicy and interesting combinations of flavors and recipes from all over the world today :)

    •  Native Americans invented popcorn... (2+ / 0-)

      ...and enjoyed the stuff immensely.  This is from archaeological digs here in New Mexico (around 3600 BCE) and down in Peru (4600 BCE).

      Don't know why I think spicy foods and popcorn are related, just thought I'd mention it.  Maybe because I like spicy popcorn.  Sriracha flavored popcorn, yum!  Just saw Sriracha flavored chips at the market.  Is Sriracha taking over the Earth?
