The seeds of history

Deborah Fox-News-Bulletin photo: Los Lunas artist, Nicolas Otero and New Mexico author, Rudolfo Anaya, first worked together on Anaya’s book, “How Hollyhocks Came to New Mexico,” and the book, “How Chile Came to New Mexico.” Otero painted the illustrations for both books. Anaya is holding a retablo created by Otero as a gift for the author.

The scintillating sweet aroma of roasting green chile is a common feature at this time of year. Nothing says New Mexico quite like chile, red or green, and the gas-fired roasting drums can be seen tumbling chile pods all around the state.
