One year we got lucky and were in Taos and Santa Fe when the chili harvest was happening and we even picked up two bushels of peppers to bring back to New Orleans.
I have no record of which month that was.
I know the time of crops varies from year to year, but I'm looking ahead to this fall. When should we plan to be in New Mexico for maximum chili-ness? Not necessarily maximum hotness, but when every restaurant will be using chilis because they can and because they want to.
