Chili...how do I explain that...Here in New Mexico we are known for our chili. Hatch (A town in the southern part of the state) is where most of the chili is grown here. Depending on when it's picked, will determine the intensity of the chili. The green chili, which is one of the more popular, is probably closest to the anaheim chili. So yes, technically it is a pepper. However, here in NM, we don't eat it say like a Jalapeno, Once picked, the chili's are usually roasted over an open flame, charred on the skin, and then once packaged, you can do one of two things. Either freeze the chili as is, into individual packages, for later consumption, or peel it, and seed it and then freeze it. We tend to buy in bulk, since they are only cultivated once per year. When using the chili, we defrost, and then chop it, add a little garlic powder and salt to taste, and then use it over almost everything. In some cases, such as a good green chili cheeseburger, you can use the strips of chili instead of chopping it.

Now, on the other side of the coin, if the chili's are left longer on the vine, they will eventually turn red, making them hotter and in turn, this is what is called, Chili Colorado. We tend to grind this chili down into a powder and make red chili to put on almost everything, from enchiladas, to eggs, to even hot chocolate if you want it spicy.

Usually, the way we do it, is make a pot of red chili for beans and enchiladas. we make it with pork, which is the more traditional way, but others like it plain or with ground beef. Either way is fine. But you start by making a rue, flour and butter or oil, then add the chili powder, and meat of your choice that has already been browned. From there you add water to thin out the mixture to your liking. Add garlic and salt and voila, you have red chili.

There is a HUGE difference in NM chili as opposed to Texas chili, where in Texas, chili is pretty much a meal in itself. It has veggies, meats, beans, etc all mixed in with other sauces and spices. Here in NM, we take the chili as simple as we can and use it on everything.

I hope that wasn't too confusing...

That was not confusing at all I've never heard of making chili with a rue, or with pork. I might have to try it sometime! Thanks for the idea!

I once had a conversation with a woman in OH about chili. After explaining to her that we do not make chili out of tomato sauce or any kind of tomato anything, I went on to mention green chili. She then asked me if we use green tomatoes for that. Explaining chili to ppl outside of NM can be tricky.

Yeah. It took me a while to figure out how to explain it in writing. Every state has their own way of doing it. To be honest, every city has it's own way. It's just like everything else we make. Some people do enchilada's sort of like flautas, where they roll the enchiladas up and them smother them, as opposed to like a casserole or lasagna style like we do. That's the wonderful world of food!!!!

great TR so far. I haven't been to Universal Studios or Seaworld and I'm super excited to get back in June. It seems a lot has changed since then. Can't wait for the update.

Well the way most New Mexican's do chili here. And because of the way we use chili here, it makes it hard for us to eat at any spanish type cuisines outside of New Mexico. So we usually take some along with us to use on vacation. Like our recent trip to WDW. We took both red and green chili along. Since we were staying at our timeshare the first portion of our trip, and had a kitchen, I made casserole style enchiladas with the red. So we can get our "chili fix" so to speak.

And someone mentioned that people have recently started putting fritos in their chili. We've been doing that for years. Around here, we call it a frito pie. Why they call it a pie is beyond me, but that's been the term used for years.

Hey, a new reader. Thanks for reading along.

We loved Universal and Sea World. I hope you have as much fun as we did.

You're making me hungry!! Sounds like the delicious food in the legit restaurants back home. I just didn't know how it was done - but thanks to you, I might try it. I am sure there are lots of those here, too - have tried a couple of "hole in the wall" places. The recipes back home in Oregon, which in our town was about 25% Latino, seemed to be ALOT like the recipes in Puerto Vallarta. I am not so engrained that I need to bring my own chilis though!

In a restaurant, if i order a breakfast plate that comes with potatoes or hash browns, I tend to leave those for last so I can eat them with Ketchup. That way the ketchup doesn't get into my eggs or anything else.

So,,, there is a LITTLE bit of normalacy?



The Manta in CA is completely different from Manta in FL. The Manta in FL I have been on once. This past trip, T-Man and his sister had a bet going that if she rode The Incredible Hulk coaster at Islands of Adventure 15 times in one day, that he would then ride Manta 10 times (Because of the difference in extremes, it would be unwise to do it more than that I guess). His sister rode Hulk 15 times, and so when we went to SW, he was bound and determined to keep his side of the bargain. His sister is as crazy as he is when it comes to coasters, I stand off to the side and wave and take pictures most of the time.
but for some reason, this particular coaster makes her become Dumb Sister (saving me the trouble of coming along as Dumb Wife). She can't handle it. However, she went along for 4 of the rides, each time freaking out and channeling her inner sister in law (i.e., screaming and closing her eyes for the ride). Needless to say, by the end of the 4th ride, she threw in her towel. T-Man only made it 7 times. He would have made it the whole 10 but by the time we went to see the final Shamu show, the park was getting ready to close and he didn't get a chance to test his boundaries. He did however have a few nice bruises from the ride. His sister called it even after that I think.

Ok,,, it appears that tthis is a ride I need to try! I've ridden the Montu,,, the Mantis,, but not the Manta,,, excuse me,,, can we get somebody else in charge of naming these coaster?

You are correct my dear! Gotta have hot sauce for the eggs!

WHat ever happened to salt and pepper?

I live in New Mexico, where the official state question is Red or Green, meaning do you want red or green chili with your food. We eat chili with just about everything here. We usually take some along on our trips because we can't go extended periods of time without it. We start to get the shakes and it's not pretty. So yes, when no chili is available, I will substitute hot sauce or salsa.

Heck,,,I thought you were weird when you went to Rainforest to get PIZZA! You go to MacDonalds for the salads, too, don't you?

As I grew older, my tastes changed. i used to only eat hot dogs with ketchup, now, I am not that fond of it. I will eat them with mustard, and occasionally, because of T-Man, will eat them with Mayo when having a chili dog.

I concur there,,, mayo and sour cream can be great on a hot dog.

I love to eat my fries with Ranch. Of course I eat Ranch on almost anything too, Pizza is a favorite for that. Again...normality?

And I will dip m y fries in just about anything as well,,,mustard, ketchup,,, BBQ sauce,, mayo,,,,French dressing,, yes,, you read that right.



Ranch on fries is wonderful! If i can't have ranch though, I will eat them with ketchup. I know a lot of people who like mayo with their fries. Never tried it. I have done Aoli, which of course is a garlic mayo, but I think the spices and the garlic change the dynamics.

Hi there!
I love your trip report T-Man and Lady H. You two have so much fun together - thanks for sharing

I have a feeling I will be copying your idea of spiked simply lemonades the next time I get down to the parks. Yummmmmm!!

I'm up in NorCal so I'm able to get to DL once or twice a year. It's fun to see it from a WDW point of view. Glad you've been having a good time and can't wait to read more.

Pam

That's how I feel. I've had to change though. Ruby is not happy when we get back from vacation and she needs a vacation to recover.

Duh. Buy a cheap wind up alarm clock.

Probably some supervisor saw him let you on before (from the omnipresent vid cameras) and came down hard on him.

Actually, that kinda makes sense.


But you still can't put ketchup on potatoes.

Depending on when it's picked, will determine the intensity of the chili. The green chili, which is one of the more popular, is probably closest to the anaheim chili. So yes, technically it is a pepper. However, here in NM, we don't eat it say like a Jalapeno, Once picked, the chili's are usually roasted over an open flame, charred on the skin, and then once packaged, you can do one of two things. Either freeze the chili as is, into individual packages, for later consumption, or peel it, and seed it and then freeze it. We tend to buy in bulk, since they are only cultivated once per year. When using the chili, we defrost, and then chop it, add a little garlic powder and salt to taste, and then use it over almost everything. In some cases, such as a good green chili cheeseburger, you can use the strips of chili instead of chopping it.

Now, on the other side of the coin, if the chili's are left longer on the vine, they will eventually turn red, making them hotter and in turn, this is what is called, Chili Colorado. We tend to grind this chili down into a powder and make red chili to put on almost everything, from enchiladas, to eggs, to even hot chocolate if you want it spicy.

Usually, the way we do it, is make a pot of red chili for beans and enchiladas. we make it with pork, which is the more traditional way, but others like it plain or with ground beef. Either way is fine. But you start by making a rue, flour and butter or oil, then add the chili powder, and meat of your choice that has already been browned. From there you add water to thin out the mixture to your liking. Add garlic and salt and voila, you have red chili.

There is a HUGE difference in NM chili as opposed to Texas chili, where in Texas, chili is pretty much a meal in itself. It has veggies, meats, beans, etc all mixed in with other sauces and spices. Here in NM, we take the chili as simple as we can and use it on everything.

I hope that wasn't too confusing...
Nope. That was excellent. Thanks Heather.

Can I come over for supper?

French fries are designed to be dipped in stuff. I doubt anyone could shock me. Without lying that is.
