ABQ Spice will begin selling spice and tea blends with a local New Mexican twist in 2022. We have a lot of experience regarding New Mexican chile and cuisine, so our spices will certainly be a great choice to use or give as gifts.
New Mexico has a long tradition of spicy foods, whether it is roasted green chile, a red chile sauce, or even a roasted jalapeno with a burrito. Behind every good food however is a good spice profile. There is a lot more flavor in the world than salt and pepper, although that simplicity works great on something like a steak.
There are a lot of spices that are often overlooked which provide a great synergy with food. An example of this is using a dash of clove in beef dishes or juniper berries in pork. There are many things I have found during my time as a chef and world traveler that I want to share with you.
If you love trying new flavors, be sure to keep us in mind, as we will always be adding new products to our selection. Although we will not have a physical location to begin the season, you will be able to find our products at Farmer’s Chile Market at 2010 Eubank NE Albuquerque, NM.
A Chef’s Touch
My experience as a chef in several different countries has shown me many flavor combinations. Our products will not taste like anything else you can buy. That uniqueness is what we want to build our brand on.
Commitment to Quality
You can be sure that I will be personally visiting many farms every year to ensure the highest quality possible. Dry spices tend to last a long time, but our standards for freshness are very high. We won’t ship product that was packaged more than 6 months before.
Although New Mexico doesn’t grow many spices, we will source as locally as we can. This goes double for chile products, as the flavor and variety of New Mexican chile, whether it is from Hatch, Socorro, Chimayo, or elsewhere is second to none.
