Greetings from Northern New Mexico!

There is no snow on the ground yet, but the temperature is definitely dropping and winds are blowing cold across the Taos plain. This is the time of year when we double check the wood pile at the cabin and make sure the cupboards are well stocked in case we can't get our car out of the driveway until its plowed. Here in New Mexico we're proud of our Hatch Red Chile. We add it to our soups, stews, beans, tacos, burritos, posole, salsa, meats and other recipes. We have taken this chile and added garlic, oregano, onion and cilantro so that you are ready to spice up your cooking. Whether you use our spice mix by itself or just to get you started you'll be glad you found Rio Grande Chile Spice Mix.

Rio Grande Chile Spice Mix

Harvested from chile fields watered by New Mexico's Rio Grande, this mild red chile is then combined with other local flavors creating a blend of spices that captures the culinary essence of New Mexico. The history, culture and traditions of the Southwest will pour into your homemade dishes. Use this authentic seasoning in tacos, burritos, salsa, posole, as a rub or marinade for grilled meats and much more.
