Did You Know...
Cumin, or comino, has a long culinary history dating back to the Old Testament. Its aromatic, nutty flavor, whether ground or in the form of a seed, is a common ingredient in southwestern, Middle Eastern, Asian and Mediterranean cuisine.
Place chops on a serving platter, and garnish with fresh cilantro sprigs and small clusters of red and green chilies.
