17 Instant Pot Recipes For Spice Lovers
 
When there is no heat in a dish, it’s boring. Who wants boring? Now heat isn’t just about being spicy. It’s not about the sport of how many peppers you can take. It is about the flavor and full-bodied layers of appreciating spices.
 
Around the world, different cultures have hounded the skill of using spices. Creating dishes that are iconic. Mexico is known for its use of various peppers and chilies incorporated into salsas. Thai and Indian curries steal the show with their access to open markets full of spice mounds of all colors from the earth. Korea has their infamous kimchi. While North America can thank Africa and the Carribean for creating the Cajun culture.
 
Heat can be addictive. The spicy hot flavor in each bite makes you want more. Even when your eyes start to water. Seeking the hottest thing on a menu and finishing it, warrants merit of strength, like a warrior.
