Great chile tasting, contest and celebration!

Congratulations to the winners of our Heirloom Chile Contest. Luz and Jose Lopez of Nambe won double first prizes for their chile stew and raw chile tasting and contributions by Elias Gomez, Josie Gallegos, Jose Velasquez and Roy Campbell, all of Alcalde, won special mentions for the taste and flavors of their local chile varieties. This is our fourth year to honor local chile during our annual Labor Day Free Chile Roasting. Clarissa Duran has organized this event each year and we want to especially acknowledge her creative work and the support of Lauren Reichelt of Rio Arriba County Health Center in helping to support this program and also helping to fund the student participation in the Cooking Up Traditions program.
