We won TWO Scovie competition Awards with our Chile Items!

from The Santa Fe New Mexican Nov. 16, 2010, by Rob De Walt:

Speaking of sweet treats: Congratulations to local confectioner Chuck Higgins, owner/operator of C.G. Higgins Confections (847 Ninita St., 820-1315), for earning a first-place 2011 Scovie Award for Unique Snack for his chile-pecan brittle, and a first-place Scovie Award in the snack-popcorn category for his New Mexico-chile caramel corn. Both products use both red and green chile, and both scored well for having high concentrations of chile flavor without too much punishing heat. Created by chile head and fiery foods expert Dave DeWitt (he's on the board of New Mexico State University's Chile Pepper Institute), The Scovie Awards are given out annually after a blind tasting and honor the best heat-seeking foods on the planet. You can wait and taste Higgins' winning products March 4-6 at the Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show at Albuquerque's Sandia Resort & Casino, or you can head over to his marvelous shop off St. Francis Drive and get a chile fix earlier.
