"Add the hot pepper and tobacco."
Isn't it amazing that all the worlds hot peppers originated in the Caribbean...Thai and Indian food without hot peppers?
The tomato is also a new world food also...and Marco Polo brought noodles back from China...what did the Italians eat before that?

Not to mention chocolate, vanilla, and tomatoes (or tomatos or tomaaahtos).
Good thing the Europeans didn't arrive and destroy the Native American Culture until these were discovered.
