In the fall of 2011 we shot a short video for a contest sponsored by Chile Monster, a supplier of New Mexico chile, tortillas and tamales. The goal of the video was to “represent ANYTHING about New Mexico Chile, your LOVE for chile, Eating Chile, ANYTHING CHILE!” It sounded like fun, so we went for it!
Bobby came up with a great idea that required his brother Jeff, a person who loves eating hot food (the hotter the better), to eat a bowl of really hot NM green chile. The premise of the idea – let’s make Jeff sweat!!! For the video Bobby shot Jeff eating a bowl, actually two bowls, of fresh roasted New Mexico chile with a few beans and a little hamburger meat (recipe follows). The video should make you smile. It sure makes me smile! (NOTE: You can watch in HD if you choose. Once you hit play, click on the “360p” and select “720pHD”, then go to full screen so you can really watch Jeff sweat! 🙂 )
