My father, Crisosto Pena, a Mexican Apache, believed that chile could cure
anything. He said that it was packed full of vitamins and therefore a cure-all,
especially for colds.
One day he returned from work and found his wife and five children in bed with
the flu. He felt so bad for them that he took out the bag of hot chile pods and
soaked them in hot water for 15 minutes. Then he put them into a grinder and
ground them with the water they were soaked in. He gave each one of his family
members a spoonful with a piece of tortilla. About an hour later the family was
moving about. The children were out playing around, and his wife was cooking
From that day on, I too believe that chile is a cure-all, especially for colds.
As a preventive medicine, you can mix the chile with garlic and onions. It not
only tastes good, but also keeps colds away.
