Yummy rats. Maybe with enough chiles it would taste good lol

For non-New Mexicans...we new New Mexicans have learned to ask "which is the hottest?", regarding "red, green, or Christmas?" Certain times of the year it is the green, other times the red. I think it has to do with when the chiles are havested. Some restaurants, like El Pinto in Albuquerque, ask "red or or mild?" But....its all good !!

Are nutria nutritious? They sound dreadful.

Even if I could eat locally-grown foods, they'd have to be nourished by water imported to Southern California. Would that count still?

We get a lot of fresh food locally, because we live on the Big Island of Hawaii, which is mostly rural. We have not one but several farmers' markets, most notably the Hilo Wednesday and Saturday Market. In addition, we grow avocados, citrus, bananas, breakfruit, and other things in my yard. On occasion, neighbors give us fish and other items. We could also drink Kona coffee and would, if it were not so expensive. I pay a lot at the health food store for organic chicken from the Mainland and local grass-fed beef.
Not bad, but of course cheese, most meats, and staples such as rice, flour and potatoes are imports.
