Green Chile Primer

21 Sep

I know people know that I am a New Mexican and we love our chile, but do you KNOW, really? When one doesn’t live in New Mexico and it’s chile harvest time, one does things like…buys a bushel and drives it 12 hours home in a cooler. Because it’s necessary. Some photos of the process:

1) Refuse to do it the easy way:

2) Get a bushel freshly roasted and almost faint from the delicious aroma.

3) Take it home in a giant box and smell up your car.

4) Divide into smaller bags for ease of use (and maybe to share…maybe not).

5) Enjoy it while it lasts.
