There’s lots of excitement in New Mexico right now. It’s green chile harvest time.

Everywhere we go for the next few weeks, sacks of green chile will abound.

And we’ll see and smell it being roasted. The smell of green chile roasting is a beautiful thing. It makes you feel alive!

Yesterday was the first time we bought a sack of our own and had it roasted.

30 pounds of freshly picked green chiles were put into the chile roaster…

The fire was turned on…

…and the drum turned the green chiles over the fire for about four minutes. Then the chiles were rinsed…

…which created steam… sorry, no smoke for the challenge…

…and the end result of beautifully roasted green chiles.

Life is good. ♥
