When I drove to Oroville, Washington, just a few minutes over the Canada-US border, I entered the grocery store produce department to discover a tremendous array of Mexican chiles: cascabels, habaneros, serranos, poblanos, pasillas, guajillos, anaheims and chilacas. Perhaps it's the produce department lighting or just the irregular shapes of the chiles that drew me over. How to portray them as distinctly Mexican? Mexican tiles, of course, I later concluded. We have a supply of small tiles at home which we purchased in Mexico one year to frame a mirror. I love the boldness of the image.
