More peppers🌶🌶🌶

I have more ‘pepper pictures’ than any one person should have🤪 Ever since Phil and I took our first trip to El Paso in 1984, I have been drawn to these roadside stands to purchase a #ristra or bag of freshly roasted peppers😎 Their entrepreneur spirits inspire me and nothing compares to the smells🌶 #zoomin and see the roasted peppers drying in the sun☀️

A ristra (/ˈriːstrɑː/) is an arrangement of drying chile pepper pods, garlic bulbs, or other vegetables for later consumption. In addition to its practical use, the ristra has come to be a trademark of decorative design in the state of New Mexico. Typically, large chiles such as New Mexico chiles and Anaheim peppers are used, although any kind of chile may be used to construct a ristra. #philmariacrosscountry
