'Tis the season for ~ chili ristras & wreaths

As the sixth in the series of "Team Tucson" I am pleased to shine a spotlight on another individual who works hard to make this a great place to live. Meet Mina, the entrepreneur who sells her hand strung chili ristras and wreaths (both round and heart-shaped) at the corner of Speedway & Houghton (in the Circle K parking lot). Her very reasonable prices start at $15.

Mina's chili stand features Hatch chilis - widely regarded as the very best. Chili ristras are a beautiful way to decorate your home and a lovely gift for your holiday hostess. They can be enjoyed hung inside or out.


  1. I have one of these hanging by my front door.

  2. I bought my Ristra in Hatch on my trip from the East!

  3. I have one of Mina's ristras hanging on my patio that I can enjoy from my kitchen window. It's a lovely reminder that I live in the Southwest!
