soon after moving to new mexico from maryland, my first
experience of the actual aroma of roasting of chilies was
at the swapmeet at the fairgrounds. huge, huge, lotsa
the smell seemed everywhere, faint here and strong there.
i wondered who was brazen enough to be smoking a doobie
right out in the open. ;)
i have since been able to recognize the smell of roasting
chilies as opposed tgo other things...
