A State Symbol and Symbol of the Southwest for good luck as well as good food and a southwestern cooking ingredient...New Mexico Red Chili Ristra Art. Ristras are strings of dried red Chilis sometimes decorated with gourds, multi colored corn on the cob,dried pods and dried flowers. Originally one would string (ristra means strand) strand of chili to hang and dry. The chili could be used for a very long time when dried...up to a year. Many wonderful and tasty Mexican dishes include red or green chilis. Whether you want to string them to eat or utilize in recipes makes no difference, they are beautiful and vibrant red. The Ristra's (pronounced, ree stra) when made for decoration, are usually coated and sealed, in other words preserved. They are typically hung outside the front door also bring good luck.....Digital Art Photography of "Red Chili Ristra Art" by Barbara Chichester
