Who doesn’t love being smitten with new food? Just like a high school crush, you spend the day fantasizing; but instead of dates to the movies and where your first kiss will be, you imagine curries you’ll craft or just what kind of cocktail you want to make with your new favorite rum. We’re just head over heels for these dried New Mexico chiles right now and the daydreams won’t stop.

The heat is mild, but the flavor is wild. Close your eyes and you might imagine that what you’re eating is a spoonful of cherry jam or perhaps a sweet-tart Santa Rosa plum. Along the back of your nose you smell verdant spring wind. The New Mexico chili pepper is a darling in fruit pies, infused with rum, layered into tacos, or scattered on a reinvented pizza margherita.
