If you don't appreciate New Mexico chilis, you are sad, sorry, taste impoverished individual!
They aren't the best for salsa, though. They are best for making pork green chili.
lard + flour + pork + roasted green chilis + salt + maybe tomatoes = awesome. Eat it with tortillas, or over a burrito.
There are many different cultivars of the New Mexico Green Chile. They've even got some that are super hot. Nothing close to a habanero, Thai, ghost, or anything like that, but they make up for it in mass.
I hate Microsoft as much as the next guy but Apple kind of sucks too, for a different reason. They always know what's best for you and you do it their way or else. If Apple had an ice cream store, there'd be one flavor, and it'd be whatever was Steve Jobs' favorite.
I second the dehydration/electrolyte theory. Stay hydrated and eat some bananas or some other potassium source. Gout tends to focus on one specific joint which is almost always the big toe. It will feel like you have glass in your foot.
Instead of drinking, I recommend a certain herb which is now quasi-legal in CO and WA.
