Whether it’s the endorphin rush or the clear sinuses from the hot ones, or just the overall good flavor you seek, good chile peppers won’t fail to deliver. Although we’re months from true Hatch green chile high season, there are plenty of other peppers to be found either in the produce section or the freezer, so why not treat yourself tonight?

Believe it or not, there are no easily find-able quotes about chiles, and few even about Chile or hot peppers, so instead we’ll close with this:
The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.
