Chile ristras have a long tradition as an integral part of Southwestern décor, but many people don’t realize that they also have a long tradition as part of Southwestern cuisine as well.

Ristra means “string” in Spanish, so a chile ristra is simply dried chiles strung together. Some chile ristras are treated with plastic or shellac to preserve their beautiful red color. These ristras are designed purely for decoration and are inedible. Others (like the dried Hatch Chile Ristras available from The Fresh Chile Company) are untreated and completely edible, but a lot of people wonder how to use this Southwestern cooking  staple in the kitchen. How they’re used depends somewhat on what kind of chile the ristra is made from.

Edibility was the original purpose of the bright and beautiful ristra. The chiles were carefully dried in the sun (often on the flat roofs of adobe homes), then tied together and kept in the home as a way to enjoy the incomparable flavor of chile all year round. Even if eating them doesn’t appeal, a ristra is a beautiful decoration in your home that symbolizes hospitality and warmly welcomes all who enter.
