Last Chance Chile

I hate to break it, but we're kind of butting up against the last call for chile this season, as most roasters seem to close out their supply at the end of October. With that in mind, here's who we know is still roasting:

Green Chile Trade: Sharing The Love

A year ago, I express mailed a particularly good batch of freshly roasted green chile to a former New Mexico coworker and friend who is now living in Alaska. She was JONESING for the chile. A few weeks ago, she returned the favor: freshly caught Alaska salmon. Tonight, I combined her special package with my own recent batch of freshly roasted. The result? Sublime.

Do you have stories of sending green chile and having friends return… Continue

Would You Wait Five Hours for Fresh-Roasted Chile?

God knows what many of us would do for a freshly-roasted batch of New Mexico chile -- but waiting five hours in the hot August sun?

That was the case today at the new Sunflower Market at San Mateo and Academy. Before I entered the store for other items, I had to visit the spectacle in the south-side parking lot: no fewer than 25 people waiting in line, all of them with shopping carts full of burlap bags of chile waiting to be roasted. Some… Continue

Oh Sweet 505

All right. In 3 days we hit the Albuquerque city limits for a show with AMP Concerts at The Source. I'll be opening for one of my favorite songwriters on the planet, Susan Gibson. It's going to be fun. You should come.

MORE IMPORTANTLY...I am trying to plan out my chile fixes...maybe perhaps if I could just get it injected in two alternating streams of red/green/red/green...that might serve me best. But I… Continue

Geneticaly Modified Green Chile....

Why mess with perfection?

The New Mexico State Legislature has approved funding

to develop genetically-modified chile.

Is there anything wrong with our chile now that it

requires modification? Isn't it wonderful just as it

is, delicious and nutritious and flavorful?

Genetically-modified seeds automatically become

the property of its creators.

Want to learn more?

Come on out to the UNM SUB Ballroom

on December 13th at… Continue

A Chile Rant

(I originally wrote this for my Austin-centric blog because...people need to know. If I got any of the chile facts wrong, blame Google.)

Hi. I'm a New Mexican. I can't help it, and I hope that's ok with you. Hailing from a state whose entire population is on par with that of Austin and it's surrounding cities, there's not a whole lot of us statistically speaking. Also, I think a whole bunch of us have moved to Texas because I keep… Continue

The Burger Wars: A New Sheriff In Town?

NOB HILL--The title is huge: Best Green Chile Cheeseburger...period. The contest for the best burger has never been strictly local; it has always been statewide. And it is never just a hamburger contest; it is definitely a Green Chile Cheeseburger affair. Albuquerque has had some memorable entrants in this fry-off. The “double zero” GCCB on the numbered list of burgers at Monroe’s on Lomas springs instantly to mind. But curiously enough Albuquerque…

7 Things... (Culinary Edition)

Inspired by Sophie's "7 things about Albuquerque that make my friends in other cities burn with jealousy" post, I'm submitting my own - foodie style.

Red and green chile -

This is obvious, but it has to be said. Nowhere else in the country do they have chile quite like what we have here. When I first moved to Albuquerque, I thought there was no way I would ever get into the chile culture. I was so very, very wrong. We have a friend in Houston who wants my enchiladas… Continue
