Garlic, Cumin and Chilli are the most common Spices used in Mexico all add taste to food.
With a similar appearance to caraway seeds, cumin is the dried fruit of a plant in the parsley family. Cumin has a nutty, smoky flavor that works well in combination with other spices like chilis, cinnamon, and coriander. The dried seeds are tiny and oblong, and the spice is a light orange-brown when ground. It can be purchased and used whole or ground, and it best stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry, and dark location for up to six months.
