I'm not sure if this is noteworthy or not. I don't pay that much attention to peppers. However, the constant chat on the boards about New Mexican chiles has me interested. So since this is the first time I've noticed these in the Bay Area, I thought I would report it for New Mexican chile fans. They are 69 cents a pound and at my Raley's in El Sobrante, very nice looking. I bought one for the heck of it.
Do NOT however buy the Abuelita's Tortillas next to the peppers.
I got carried away with the spirit of New Mexico and bought a pack without reading the ingrediants ... cellulose gum, fumeric acid, calcium propinate, potasium sorbate, sorbic acid, baking powder, guar gum ... it tastes it ... stale and gummy,
To add insult to injury they are $2.50 for a pack of 10 small tortillas ... what was I thinking?
No reason to buy something like this with all the wonderful fresh tortillas in the Bay Area without junk in them ... especially in my area. Let this be a sad cautionary tortilla tale to always read the ingrediant list.
