I got tired of eating Chili Cheese Tamales that had very little chili. So, I
bought a bag of raw chilies at 49 cents a pound and boiled them for about 45

If you like chili, try the Hatch Chili from New Mexico. They are wonderful.

schedule. I offer last year's schedule so you can check to see whether or

Melissa'a folks visit the same locations each year.
There are four categories: mild medium hot extra-hot. We like the hot.
These are roasted on site and last in the freezer. We bought ten pounds,
which did not last six months. So the plan this year is to purchase 20
pounds to freeze. The cost for ten pounds, as I recall, was about $20.
