Navajo Agricultural Products Industry (“NAPI”) entered the Navajo Pride Green Chile to compete in the 2020 Great New Mexico Chile Taste-Off! The event is hosted by the New Mexico Chile Association (“NMCA”) and sponsored by Bueno Foods.
On October 7, NMCA visited NAPI to conduct an interview with Elaina Viola, Crop Foreman; Vanessa Ray, Native Plants Coordinator; and Tania Johnson, Sales Coordinator. The video will be shared by NMCA’s social media and news releases to promote the Great New Mexico Chile Taste-Off.
NMCA is traveling to several Farmers’ Market to hand out FREE chile tasting kits, while supplies last. Each kit will include 12 samples of New Mexico Certified Green Chile. After preparing and tasting the green chile, the taste-tester will vote for their favorites! The voting began on October 3 and will end on October 25.
NAPI is excited for the competition and looks forward to your votes! 😃
