Day 7 

 

We’ve spent the week nursing and napping. Boy, have we grown! We’re about twice as big as we were at birth. Mama Lani takes good care of us. We love to burrow under her silky hair until we disappear.

Chile Peppers

New Mexicans consume more chile per capita than any other group in the United States. New Mexico has an optimum climate for growing pungent chile with low annual precipitation. The high desert climate provides a high intensity of sunlight, warm days, cool nights and daily breezes, which help to dry the plants after a rain or morning dew. Several hundred varieties of chiles are grown in New Mexico, including New Mexican (green and red), cayenne, habanero and jalapeño.

Chiles range from the sweet bell pepper to the fiery hot habenero. They are considered a vegetable when green, and a spice when dried.

Chile Ristras of New Mexico

In New Mexico, as in other parts of the southwest, it’s tradition to hang ristras (a string of chile peppers) at the front door. It’s a welcoming sign and it’s said to bring good health and good luck.

The word "Chile" is a variation of "chil" derived from the Nahuatl (Aztec) dialect. The "e" ending is the correct Hispanic spelling of the word.
