New Mexico’s earned it. As Rep. Rudy Martinez, D-N.M., the new bill’s sponsor, told the Las Cruces Sun-News newspaper: “Florida has its oranges, Georgia has Vidalia onions, Washington state is known for apples. Why not make sure that New Mexico chili is treated in the same way?”

Agreed. Just as long as the New Mexicans don’t start passing laws coming after those of us who choose “i” over “e.”

In 1983, New Mexican Senator Pete Domenici made note in the United States Congressional Record that "...'chili' is that inedible mixture of watery tomato soup, dried gristle, half-cooked kidney beans, and a myriad of silly ingredients that is passed off as food in Texas and Oklahoma. Just sayin'
