Wonderful post Q-man and I enjoyed watching those Green Chilies tumble around while being roasted. I'll have to try your local green chilie sauce - hard to beat number one.

John, Your peppers are famous and that make me want to make some hot salsa. I just may have to do that today.

John, I love your video of the green chilies, have watched it quite a few times and they look so good. There's no doubt you know Albuquerque real estate and are a wealth of knowledge for buyers and sellers.

Hot and spicy, that is how I like the sauce and the real estate market to be.

John, YUM, can imagine your green chile sauce is the BEST, and this sure looks good over some eggs about now!

Hot News!! I'll bet that if USA Today had a survey for the Best Albuquerque Real Estate Broker, you would be at the top of that list. Very good post John.

I love green chile sauce and I can't wait to try this year's version.  Nice way to tie it all in to real estate in the end as well.

I love green chiles sauce and enjoyed the video.  When in New Mexico, we usually order enchiladas with red and green I am hungry and lunchtime is at least 2 hours away...See what you have done, LOL A

Hot off the press news indeed, Albuquerque Green Chile Sauce is rated #1 and Realtor John McCormack is your go to for great recommendations and amazing service if you are looking for Albuquerque real estate!  So how can someone from Colorado get their hands on some of this local goodness, Justin is a hot sauce lover (none for me though)?!?!  --Krystal

John - We love anything that has chilies (red, green, orange - okay any color) in them, whether it's sauce, in our eggs, or on chips, so it is no surprise that Albuquerque's Green Chile sauce would be number #1.  When it comes to all things Albuquerque, your the person to talk to!

Hi John.  I love green chili.  I'm glad to hear you are having a banner crop.  Yum

Posted by Belinda Spillman, Colorado Living! (Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado) almost 7 years ago

John: A banner crop of green chili's is good news for the rest of us who enjoy them!  I am a fan of hot and spicy foods.

John - I'm not surprised at all. We measure how good Mexican food is by how far south the restaurant is - the closer to Albuquerque, the better.

I hope you are prepared to give Green Chile Sauce lessons to your relocation clients. I love your video and will post it on Facebook.

Have a wonderful week.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) almost 7 years ago

Hi John, I need to share this with my wife and daughter. They just love all those Hot Green Chile Peppers. Of Course, we may have to come to the "Q" to some of these choice ones here.

Good evening John.

Next time, when in your town I'll make sure to eat some of that great food.

Howdy and evening John

John my AR friend, here I was thinking that USA Today was dum, and they go off and pick Albuqerque Green Chile Sauce as the Number One best! Which it sure is!

Have a good one

Needless to say the people of Albuquerque are very happy and proud of being named number one by USA TODAY for having the best Green Chile Sauce!  Thanks for dropping by and joining in the hot and tasty joy of green chili sauce.  You each are very much appreciated.

Posted by John McCormack, CRS, Honesty, Integrity, Results, Experienced. HIRE Me! (Albuquerque Homes Realty) almost 7 years ago

I can smell those chiles roasting now.  Central Market in Houston has a Hatch Green Chile Festival two weekends in August, and I always go for the aroma and to stock up.  Nothing better than a good green chile cheeseburger -- or green chiles on scrambled eggs - or green chiles on grilled steak -- and the list goes on.

Posted by Debra Hight, Debra Hight (Coldwell Banker United, Realtors) almost 7 years ago

Can't wait to taste those green chiles when I visit in September-save some sauce with scrambled eggs for me!

I presume this is gooood news except for those with weak stomachs. An appropriate topic to stop by and wish you Sunday greeting especially if we were all out celebrating late last night eating these little devils. Imagination :-)) cheers cvc

John, I trust you opinion, but I think I better taste first. Love chiles, but not too hot.
