Cool Stuff

Made in New Mexico

1) Santa Fe Springs makes sparkling water in several different flavors but we think Mexican lime is the most “natural” tasting. It's simply spring water with a dash of lime essence and a healthy dose of carbonation. No sugar, salt or anything else to confuse the flavor. We love it over ice or mixed half and half with cold cranberry or orange juice ($1-$2 at grocery stores everywhere).

2) Non-native New Mexicans may complain that we have a tendency to put chile in everything but isn't most everything better with a little chile? Flo's Spicy Apple Butter certainly is. We like to use the hot apple butter in PB&Js or heated and spooned over grilled pork chops (about $4.50 at Raley's, Albertson's and Lowe's).

3) Art Sandoval makes nearly two dozen flavors of beef jerky from chipotle to teriyaki but it's his simple salt and pepper-flavored beef that makes us cuckoo for carne seca ($6 per quarter-pound at his shop at San Pedro and Constitution or $2 per one-ounce package at 7-Eleven and Walgreens).

4) Don't worry, it won't be long until the chile harvest comes in and they're roasting green chiles by the ton on every street corner. Until then you can get your fresh-roasted fix with Bueno's Autumn Roast, frozen green chile that actually tastes pretty close to freshly roasted. It's the best frozen chile we've tried (about $2.50 at grocery stores everywhere).
