Chapter Chile Roasts

Alumni Chapters Love the Heat!

Alumni Chapters around the country are hosing down their grills and ordering up their chile for their annual fall Green Chile Roasts and Picnics.

Can you smell it? We can! UNM Alumni Chapters across the nation prepare all spring to roast multiple tons of green chile for their local Green Chile Roasts and Alumni Picnics. In 2015, seven of our alumni chapters hosted Green Chile Roasts between August and October across the nation – roasting more than 6 tons of chile!

The first Green Chile Across America were held in 1997 during the Alumni Association’s Centennial Celebration. UNM Alumni Chapters continue the tradition today, helping raise funds for the Chapter Scholarship programs, which support students attending UNM from the chapters’ area.
