As a spice company, we understand the importance of having a few secret weapons up our sleeves in the flavor war. Today, I’m about to share a big secret with you, but spreading the culinary tradition of New Mexico is worth it. Brace yourself for the game-changer in the world of spice blends – Chile Pasado.
Chile Pasado is no ordinary spice. It’s dried Hatch chile that has been roasted and peeled, intensifying its smoky flavor and packing a punch of spice. While most people simply rehydrate and chop it up for use in stews and green chile sauces, I recommend taking it a step further and incorporating it into a spice blend.
Here at ABQ Spice, we’ve discovered that blending Chile Pasado with garlic powder, onion powder, and salt creates a fantastically New Mexican spice mixture. The combination of flavors is a match made in culinary heaven. Trust me, once you try it, you’ll wonder how you ever cooked without it.
If you ever find yourself in New Mexico, make sure to visit a chile roaster and keep an eye out for Chile Pasado. Not only is it a versatile ingredient, but its flavor is far more full-bodied than your average “green chile powder.” It’s the secret ingredient that will elevate your dishes to new heights.
Now, let’s talk about why Chile Pasado is the ideal souvenir to bring back from your New Mexico adventure:
Lightweight and Convenient
Chile Pasado is lightweight, making it easy to carry around while exploring the Land of Enchantment. Whether you’re hiking through breathtaking landscapes or strolling through charming towns, this spice blend won’t weigh you down.

Unlike many perishable souvenirs, Chile Pasado is shelf-stable for years. So even if life gets busy and you forget about it for a while, rest assured that it will still be ready to enhance your dishes whenever you need a taste of New Mexico.
