You will notice that those dishes don’t come from the usual countries we feature and Mexico is slightly over-represented. It’s quite normal, Chili Peppers actually come from South and Central America, and was then brought to the rest of the world with some other culinary treasures from the New World (potatoes, tomatoes, beans, corn etc). It then got integrated into the local cuisines to various degrees: while it became an essential in African and South Asian cuisine, as well as in some parts of the mediterranean area, it was quite rejected by northern Europe and America.
