Hatch Green Chile is LAW!
One of the things that New Mexico is most well known for is the local cuisine! New Mexico in my opinion has the best food in the entire country. It is important that you don’t confuse New Mexican food with Mexican food as it is very different. One of the secrets to our exquisite dishes is, yep you guessed it, HATCH CHILE! Harvest times is one of the best times to be here not just because of the cultural events going on but in large part because its time for Chile roasting across the state! Hatch chile is shipped all over the state and chile begins to be roasted and sold everywhere filling the streets with that one of a kind roasted chile aroma. Buy your chile roasted or raw and roast it yourself it doesn’t matter but we all are definitely stockpiling our chile to get us through the year. It’s world famous!
