a hot spicy Mexican dish made with meat, beans and chillies
I am wondering if the italic part could mean:
a mixture of both a hot and spicy dish
Therefore, the dish would be at the same time not only spicy, hot,as well.
Updated: Is there ant difference between the two?
a hot spicy food
a spicy hot food
But, when we say a hot food, it mean the food is just temperature hot. Am I right?
In addition, I cannot get what these mean:
is saying is that "hot spicy" is clarifying that "hot" in this use is spicy, not temperature... I'm not sure how else to explain it. A cold dish (like a salsa) could still be explained to be "hot spicy"... it does not mean the dish is both temperature hot and spicy at the same time.
