Chili Goes With Everything

From the hot New Mexico sun
to the red clay of the semi-arid desert
chilies grow taking in enough rain
to be ready for the harvest in August
then with the utmost care
they’re roasted on an open fire

peeled and frozen for future meals
because chili goes with everything.
Perfect on eggs with a fresh tortilla
stirred into the soup for lunch
simmered on the stove for a tasty topping
for steaks and mashed potatoes instead of gravy.

A great spice to enhance a kiss
careful not to rub your eyes
after handling this addictive treat
cause chili goes with everything.
