Savor New Mexico Chiles

This dish softens the chiles' heat with raisins, nuts, spices, and a slightly sweet tomato sauce.
To experience chile season in New Mexico, you could head to the Hatch Valley, near Las Cruces. The world's single-largest chile crop ― about 18,000 acres ― is grown in the fertile valleys of southern New Mexico, and the annual Hatch Chile Festival draws about 30,000 heat-seekers every Labor Day weekend.


  1. It feels like a chilli festival in our vegetable garden at the moment, so I'll note this recipe, Yoli - thanks!
