It is probably since the introduction of farming from a more nomadic lifestyle where people had to rely less on foraging and started to mix and blend different forms of food stuffs to create ever more interesting meal options for the family or perhaps tribe as a whole, and given the proliferation of beans and chilies in this wide geographical region they were and still are natural bed fellows in food recipes and both beans and chilies are high in fiber and protein.

Chile recipes can be completely vegetarian or can include protein sources such as fish and/or meat and with the spread of chilies across the world by the first Spanish navigators and the Portuguese navigators of the 13th and 14th centuries, the number of recipes which incorporate chilies across the world must, by now, run into hundreds of thousands. Each village and each mom in the village will have their and her own special blend of ingredients which changes slightly the overall taste of the recipe.
