Green chile pizza!

il cibo New Mexico

We got back late yesterday from Roma where Valerie’s sister Cara flew back to the US. Valerie was feeling like she was fighting a cold and when we were in New Mexico the best thing for a cold was green chile which has a lot of vitamin C. Valerie suggested I take one of the cans of green chile that we have down to the pizzeria around the corner from our apartment and see if they would put it on a pizza for us.

Just after they opened I went down to Pizzeria Il Menestrello and the pizzailo did not flinch when I asked for a pizza margherita and if he could put some green chile from the can I produced from my pocket on top. His response would be translated as “Why not?!”. Twenty minutes later we were enjoying the aroma and taste of pizza margherita con chile verde.

A little bit of New Mexico mixed with Italia.
