Someone had a reference back there to chile and tomatoes being taken to 
Europe by Cris Colon. He could have but American foods took about 150 
years to set in. At first the plants were put on display like Japanese 
plants today. No one knew what to do with them.  Even Granado's cookbook 
during Philip II's reign in Spain includes only a couple of American 
products.  It is not until Philip IV the next century or the 
commencement of the Borbon reign in 1700 in Spain that you can begin to 
see their incorporation in Spanish cooking.
