Roasting in late summer doesn’t just refer to those sweltering New Mexico temperatures. For native New Mexicans, this time of year is the season for roasting chiles and we just happen to be in peak season, when these peppers are ripe and hot. This year, make your chile picking and roasting a family affair with a day trip to Big Jim Farms.
