A tasty detour from I-10 Chipotle Texas

Getting off the freeway can bring tremendous--and tasty--rewards.   If you take I-10's exit 72 at Fort Hancock and head south, you'll soon come to a CHILE STORE.  Walk inside and you'll see the products of a local business that's done so well, they're sending Far West Texas chile flavors around the world.  Chipotle Texas has its home in Fort Hancock, and it dries and smokes chile, produces specialty spice blends and wins awards for their work...all from Hudspeth County.

Here's their Chipotle Texas' Hot Cornbread for you to try at home!

1 cup corn meal
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 egg, beaten
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tbsp.  Chipotle Texas cayenne chile powder
3/4 tsp salt

Combine ingredients, mix well. Pour into lightly oil coated baking dish.  Place in 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Not planning to head through Fort Hancock soon?  You can order from their webstore!
