I stumbled across a social media post recently in which New Mexicans’ passion for green chile was on clear display.
It seems a young woman and her boyfriend had broken up, and in the ensuing split, the subject of her frozen green chile stash became a point of contention.
“At one time I went through a breakup and that vato’s mom was trying to move my deep freezer full of green chile out the door,” she said. “I had to put my foot down.”
Responses to the post were pretty funny as well.
“That is sooooo New Mexico,” one person said.
“I can now die happy. That is all anyone needs to know about dating in NM. Green Chile over bros!” another responded.
“Always the chile,” said anaother.
