Dining in Gallup

Red or Green?

In New Mexico, the word “chile” does not usually refer to the common hearty bean soup, but rather to chile peppers. In Gallup, having chile offered as a part of your meal is often unavoidable. Chile is added to everything from pizza and breakfast burritos, to steaks, pies, and even some local New Mexican beers.

All chiles start green then turn yellow or red as they ripen. Contrary to popular wisdom, green is almost always hotter than red. Green chile is generally used fresh while red chiles are dried and used as powder or reconstituted into a sauce which has an earthy flavor with a hint of cherry.

So, for those who like a little heat with their meal . . . “red or green?” You can also order your meal Christmas-style, which includes both red and green chile.

Not surprisingly, New Mexico ranks first in the world for the amount of chile produced and acreage planted. Try it on one of your meals today!
