Let's Talk New Mexico 8/15 8a: New Mexico and green chile seem inextricably linked. How did green chile get here in the first place? We’ll talk about chile verde, its origins in the pre-colonial Southwest, its present as New Mexico's most famous crop, and its future as NASA plans to grow chiles on the International Space Station. We want to hear from you! What are your favorite chile memories? Do you have chile recipes passed down from your ancestors? What do you want to know about the tasty pepper?
