Chile Harvest

The heady aroma of chiles blistering over an open flame wafts through the farmer’s market these days in Santa Fe. Bushels of brightly colored green, red and yellow chiles are everywhere. Whether you like them hot, hot, hot or mildly smokey – you’ll find just the right pepper to get your chile fix! In New Mexico we spell our peppers “c-h-i-l-e” and ask for “Christmas” on our huevo rancheros. That’s how we know if you’re a native or just passing through.

Chile Time!

New Mexico is the chile pepper (or chili if you live outside of NM!) capital of the United States. From mid-August to early-October it’s chile roasting time in Santa Fe! Chile roasters are set up in local parking lots, blistering their spicy contents over an open flame. The aromatic aroma of roasting chile peppers is irresistible. Whether you like it fiery hot, Christmas (green and red) or a toned down milder version, you’ll be intoxicated by the sights, smells and tastes of New Mexico chile.
