The 2017 Scovie Awards have been announced and the winner is… first a little backstory.
New Mexico is known for beautiful scenery, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, our amazing weather and of course, Green Chile. Anyone who has visited New Mexico can tell you the one thing that defines our state is a love for the flavor and heat of it. In fact, New Mexico is nicknamed The Green Chile Capital of the World. Sometimes, this spicy little pepper goes by the name chile verde or chili verde, but no matter how you spell it or say it, it’s a definite staple of New Mexican cuisine
When we began to work on our recipe, we were obsessed with creating something special to highlight the flavor of our delicious unofficial state food. Born and raised in New Mexico and mighty serious about chile verde, we knew ours had to be the best. After experimentation, trial and error, we finally perfected our toasty sauce with its blend of tomato, onion, garlic, spices and, of course, plenty of green chile. Our sauce consists of local green chile peppers that have been grown without any genetic modification and like all Gilly Loco salsas and sauces, we keep it free of artificial ingredients. with that in mind, we are happy to announce-
