The green chile: Its history and place in New Mexican identity

It’s an old joke for New Mexicans to poke fun at people who don’t know what green chile is. We order it on our Mexican food at restaurants and hear, “You mean jalapenos?” or “Bell peppers?” And it’s often directed at Texans. I’ll admit, I’ve had my share of poking fun at H-E-B, which uses green chile in strange ways, and the way all Texans refer to green chile as “Hatch Chile,” but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to share the joy and love of green chile with all my Texas friends. Green chile is part of the New Mexican culture. It’s part of the New Mexico identity.
