I’m not too sure about the rest of the world, but in my state we have Chili Season. What it is is Hatch grows a fuckton of green and red peppers of various hotness and they all get fire roasted in parking lots. So what we’re left with is massive amounts of fresh, roasted peppers with both great flavor and some nice kick that we put in and on everything. Burritos, soup, burgers, pizza, chocolate, ice cream, wine, anything we can.
You can get it canned in other places, but it’s not the same. It’s a very unique flavor.
Ah then in response to your post, Texas does the Hatch chili thing too. I lived there for a few years and I remember the first time I heard of “hatch season” and saw the roasting going on in grocery store parking lots. It was weird!Nah, New Mexico. We’re the weird Texas-California hybrid state.
In general, New Mexico has an interesting relationship with food. Because of how many different cultures we have living on top of each other, it’s a mix of Tex-Mex, legit Mexican, Native American, and ‘American’ foods. Our burger joints would never dare dream of not having Hatch chilies as an option, our bakeries will always have biscochitos, and masa harina is in every supermarket. And that’s just the food.Ah then in response to your post, Texas does the Hatch chili thing too.

Sometimes I hate my country because it goes beyond rétarded, but, I can't deny that its food is amazing and I'm proud of it.
