7. Allspice
Allspice—as the name suggests–smells and tastes like a combination of a number of fragrant spices, including cinnamon, nutmeg, juniper, and pepperco
rn. However, it’s actually derived from the dried berry of the Jamaican pimento tree. Many of us don’t know how to use Allspice or when it would be an appropriate seasoning, but try using it when making jerk chicken or any Latin cuisine for a little flavor boost.

8. Cilantro
Cilantro, one of the most unique of the natural herbs, has a strong, pungent flavor, and if you prefer mild tasting dishes it might not be for you. Cilantro is great in guacamole and other Latin recipes, and is also a delicious addition to marinades if you want to add an exotic flair.
