Mexican Manzano Chilies (or chilis?)... found in Westchester!
A few days ago I was in White Plains to visit my mother. I routinely walk from the White Plains train station to her apartment, which takes me through an area of White Plains not far from White Plailns Hospital where there are a number of Mexican and South American markets and bakeries. I often stop at La Paisa, a Colombian bakery, for baby corn arepas - I bring some to my mother - and other times I go into a Mexican market (I can't remember the name right now) to look around. On Sunday I took a second look at a cluster of chilis that I'd noticed previously and this time I decided to buy a couple. They're thick-skinned like bell peppers but smaller, and their color is mostly yellow with some green. It turns out they're called Manzano chilis,
