Claim green chile as your own.
Nothing has united New Mexico so fully under a single banner as the Colorado-trying-to-steal-our-claim-to-green-chile scandal. Green chile is the state vegetable of New Mexico. It is actually called “New Mexican green chile.” New Mexico has a state question: “Red or green?” And that question is referring to your chile preference. And you think you might be able to say it doesn’t belong to us? Nice try. We have little else as our claim to fame, so we’ll fight for this one to the death.
