1 lb. New Mexico Horno Chicos


Our chico sweet corn is grown in the mild, cool climate of Northern New Mexico where the sugar's of the corn set so well.  The sweet corn is harvested a few days after it is fresh-market ready so the kernels are nice and plump. The corn is put into an horno, an outdoor oven used by the Native Americans and first Hispanic peoples of New Mexico, where the corn is cooked slowly overnight. The corn husk is then removed and the corn is placed in the air and sun dried for about two weeks. The kernels are then cleaned and bagged ready for market. Chicos are an amazingly rich, gourmet food that is added to pinto beans for a rich nutty flavorful traditional New Mexico meal.

My wife was making a pot of beans and said that we had just enough for this batch and asked me to order some more. This was the third time for getting getting a bag of chicos which we really like

I made a batch of beans & chicos (my mother loved chicos) and it was wonderful! The chicos have a nice cruch and slightly sweet flavor. I'm very pleased.
