The cabana bowl: a pile of rice and beans on a thin, tostada-like shell of deep-fried   pastel   dough. A skewer of churrasco tops it off.

Waxing Brazilian

By Ari LeVaux

Jamon’s Frybread Cabana

The rise of the churrasco craze has given people a narrow, if somewhat authentic, view of Brazilian food. There are, indeed, a lot of churrascarias in Brazilthough in my five trips there I’ve yet to see a red-and-green block that you position according to how hungry you are. You can eat all the grilled chicken hearts you want, but until you’ve had rice and beans made by a Brazilian, you haven’t truly sampled the cuisine.

Gustavo Arellano video interview in Hatch, N.M.

By Ari LeVaux [ Sat Apr 21 2012 1:00 PM ]

Two summers ago, I rendezvoused with The Mexican at Crazy Melva's Pepper Pot in Hatch. I was there for green chile for the freezer from Chile Express and Biad. Gustavo Arellano was there for the Chile Festival, in search of stories for his book. We broke tortillas over chile, I green he red. Here is an edited video of that historic lunch.

Down the Hatch

By Laura Marrich [ Sat Sep 3 2011 5:00 PM ]

Las Cruces High School mariachis, chile eating contests and a chile queen coronationput them together, and you've got a whole lot of small-town Southern New Mexico charm. The Hatch Chile Festival turns 38 on Saturday and Sunday at the Hatch Municipal Airport (due south on I-25, then one mile west of Hatch on Hwy. 26). Admission is $10 per carload, and don't forget to bring a cooler for all that roasted green stuff.

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

By Marisa Demarco [ Mon Aug 1 2011 4:35 PM ]

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.

Not like stove hot. Like hot hot.

Once, I was posted up in a booth behind a tourist couple, and the lady said in an alarmed voice to the man: “This food is so hot you can’t even taste the food!”

Best of Burque

It's a bird, it's a plane!

By Amy Dalness [ Thu Mar 31 2011 3:01 PM ]

It's the Weekly Alibi's 18th annual Best of Burque issue. Faster than a speeding red-light runner. More powerful than Don Schrader's home-brewed goat head yerba maté. You, the readers, picked the best of the best in the Duke City. We, Albuquerque's faithful alternative weekly, compiled those green chile slathered nuggets of local goodness into what is sure to be the best Best of Burque issue of 2011.

Don't take our word for it. The issue (officially) hits stands on Thursday, April 7, but if you hunt diligently it can be found in select locations on Wednesday, April 6.

A secret pinto bean recipe now released to the public at large.

By Nick Brown [ Mon Mar 21 2011 2:19 PM ]

I used to think beans needed salt pork or ham hocks to come out right. Not so. Beans are just as delicious with no meat at all. I imagine there may come a time when you don’t even need beans to make beansjust air and a discerning palette. In the mean time, here’s my world-famous recipe for beans.

Contaminated chile

By Marisa Demarco [ Tue Dec 14 2010 2:23 PM ]

The Food and Drug Administration ordered the seizure of chile products from a warehouse in Derry, N.M.

U.S. Marshals confiscated the chile from Duran and Sons. (I’ve got a call in to the FDA to find out how much was seized, and how this chile is usually distributed.) According to the complaint filed by the FDA, inspectors discovered:

Where are all the sand hill cranes?

In the mean time...

By John Bear [ Sun Oct 31 2010 8:24 PM ]

What can I say, I have a fairly unhealthy fixation on birds the last year or two, in particular, sand hill cranes.

For the last month I have been impatiently awaiting the arrival of the ancient ones to Central New Mexico. I have seen huge flocks of birds flying high above the Rio Grande in recent weeks, coming in for the winter.
