A ristra is an arrangement of drying chile pepper pods for later consumption. In addition to its practical use, the ristra has come to be a trademark of decorative design in the state of New Mexico. Typically, large chiles such as New Mexico chiles and Anaheim peppers are used, although any kind of chile may be used to construct a ristra. 

Ristras are believed to "bring both good health and good luck to those who hang them at their house.
