Visited here after visiting Santuario de Chimayo. Interesting collection of items. Purchased fresh, local ground chilis--mild, chipotle, and a taco/salsa mix. Salesperson was very helpful and provided recipes. A quaint stopover if you are in Chimayo.

This is the place to find the chilis, choices, pasole... all of that. You can even place orders online and the recipes on their website are fantastic! It's right up the road from the Sanctuario, don't miss it!
