NPR misspells “chile” throughout article about Hatch, N.M.

Here’s a picture of the Red Hot Chile Pepper boot from Lane. Because you all know what chile looks like.

But NPR is rad, and so is this piece. It taught me many things, including that people down south use Spam in their rellenos. Also, that there’s a law in effect that protects New Mexico’s favorite fruit. The New Mexico Chile Advertising Act was signed in the spring. It prevents jerks who are not in the state from labeling their dumb “chili” as being grown in New Mexico. Jerks.

According to the New Mexico Chile Association, our industry is not doing so hot. No pun intended. China is trying to horn in on some of the chile market, the association says.

The New York Times did an article on the chile law back in February, too. We’re so famous. And not just for meth.
