1 lb. New Mexico Chicos


Our New Mexico chicos are grown in Moriarty. 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 orno, 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.

New Mexico Chicos from Sichler's Farm Store

Placed in water to rehydrate, these tasty kernels of corn are the perfect compliment to a big pot of pinto beans. Order online, receive quick shipment and avoid the trip into town!
