Chiles. Chiles. Chiles.
In September, a big truck of Chiles came rolling into Los Angeles! I went with my cousin to the El Rey Chile distribution in the La Puente High School parking lot. These chiles are grown in New Mexico and trucked out to Southern California each year.
Check out the El Rey Chile company for more information. They have been doing this for years and they have a big following. My cousin's co-worker has been buying chiles from El Rey for over 10 years!
Dang. Lotsa chiles! El Rey usually comes out for 4 or 5 deliveries during the months of Aug-Sept.
El Rey Farms has a devoted following of families picking up their New Mexico chiles and chile powder.
And what does everyone make? Pork & Tomatillo Chile Chili, Chile rellenos, Salsas, and placing them on everything: eggs, rice, burritos... I'll make my Auntie Joy's Chili soon and post it up!
