11 Chile-Themed Items From New Mexico That’ll Spice Up Your Life

Even when New Mexico has stolen your heart, sometimes you have to move away for practical reasons like a job, college or proximity to family.

Once you cross the state line, it hits home that the rest of the country doesn’t add chile to every conceivable food product – a major oversight.

Thankfully, there are ways to bring New Mexican spice to your life when you’re far from home, or to buy local if you’re fortunate enough to live in the Land of Enchantment. From Bloody Mary mix to chile-flavored popcorn, residents and homesick transplants alike will want to support these homegrown businesses.
