If you're still thinking of Christmas gifts for friends and family members, why not give them the gift of New Mexico flavor?

In this week's Best Bites, we have just the shop for you.

Chile Traditions on Montgomery and Wyoming has all the red and green chile gifts you could want.

From fresh to frozen, salsas to hot sauces, ristras to chile powder, they have it all.

"It's just an addiction we have being a native New Mexican," says Chile Traditions owner Ken Dewees. "If you're not a native New Mexican and have been here and had it, you're addicted. Once you've had it you want it and you make sure you do whatever you have to do to get it."

Dewees says it's not too late to put your order in. But you have to act fast and have it shipped by Friday if you want it guaranteed to arrive by Christmas.

If you choose to ship on your own, Chile Traditions will help you box your items up so they get to their destinations safely.
