Chile Ristra

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Albuquerque Homes Realty * www.AlbuquerqueHomes.com

Chile Ristras are seen hanging in many stores,shops, restaurants and homes all around the Albuquerque area.  We have two large chile ristras hanging at our front door year round. They meaning for some is Mi Casa Es Su Casa or My Home is Your Home.  It is not uncommon to keep a chile ristra in their kitchen for a quick dash of spice when cooking, others hang them for their eye catching decor.  Chile Ristra’s are just another unique Southwest touch you will find in and around Albuquerque.

I see a lot of fake ones around here....our weather would just make them mold.  But, they are cool to see in your neck of the woods.

Good Morning John, Thanks for the eductaion, we do not get to see many real ones around NH, I have seen them in a couple of popular restaurant but upon touching, they were plastic. We could use some real Southwestern style here in the Northeast. Have a great Monday

Hi Keith,  Indeed chili is easily grown, what makes them hot-hotter is they dryness of the soil.  Not intended for wet soils.  The chili type for the most part is Anaheim chili pepper

We do have plenty of color here  in the Q Joan

The shot was taken in Old Town Albuquerque Alexandra.  Just another taste of the SW

4 Years really is too long Yolanda,  I hope you are able to return soon and again experience the Land of Enchantment!

Hi Michael,  Wow I bet those spicy Bloody Mary's are awesome.  The Ristras last for about a year before they start to turn.  They can get a fungus when left out door.  Once they get "Ugly" we just replace them.

Hi Carie, Even though I love the coloring of Ristras I love great Red Chili.The Sauce that is.  I love green chili as well but not like I do RED!

Hey Debb,  This is quintessential Southwest for sure! The color the heavy "Viga" beam.  Not so sure about the blue stuff.

Laura,  It is indeed a nice welcome message. "Mi Casa es Su Casa"

Comon back Michael we would love to have to here.  When were you here last?

Steve,  They are good to look at and even better to eat.

Fred, I see them best as red chili puree poured over some hot enchiladas.

We do learn daily in Active Rain..even if it's not real estate.

Josh,  Now ya know, have a good day!

Toni,  Had a good relaxing Sunday Toni.  Hope you had a great weekend.

Hi Belinda,  I did listen when you asked for translation.  Hey sometimes I don't even know what they mean.  We have hundred of Spanish named streets in the Q I don't know what mean. 

Hey Teral,  Amen girl!  I will take them both any day, but I would rather eat them.

Karen,  When I see them It does remind me of some excellent Carne Adovada "Marinated Pork in Red Chili"

HI Debra,  Well now you have, your a good bit away from the Q so it does not surprise me.  Petty common place around here.

Rebecca,  Chili on a String!  Chili Ristra

Hi Lisa,  Chili is not for everyones palate for sure.  It can be blazing hot on the tongue and just as irritating to the stomach.  Most people have to acclimate to this kind of food. 

Ron,  They will certainly mold in wet/humid areas. The whole idea is to string them for the air drying process.

Hey Scott,  I would not think chili would do well in NH. You will want to come to the Q for a taste of this incredible chili

That is cool as heck, John.  I need to get myself a man cave and hang this in it.  Just my style, not that I have style ... but this would certainly help me in that arena.
