Hot sauce has evolved into many forms — West Indian pepper sauce, Yemeni chili relish, sriracha, and even American Tabasco, fueling ahot sauce craze. But none of it would exist without the lowly red pepper.
So how did the pepper come to figure so prominently in global cuisine?
Archaeological evidence shows chilies were eaten in Mexico thousands of years ago, there they were cultivated by the Aztecs and the Mayans, and further south in Peru, by the Incas. But it wasn’t until Christopher Columbus and crew arrived that pepper fever really took off.
