A woman in Albuquerque, New Mexico, allegedly stabbed her husband in the chest for using chile powder in their tacos.  

A good taco recipe is a precious thing, but this week a woman in Albuquerque, New Mexico, was arrested for allegedly stabbing her husband over taco seasonings.

According to KOB 4 News, the woman and her husband ate tacos prepared at their home by one of the husband’s friends this week. The flavor was fine, but the woman was enraged when she discovered that the meat had been seasoned with a variety of taco seasoning that contains chile powder, which she says she is allergic to.

The woman reportedly flew into a rage and accused her husband of trying to hurt her on purpose. He maintained that he had not prepared the tacos and was not responsible for their seasoning. Eventually, he left the house and came back the next morning, expecting tempers to have cooled by then.

Time did not have the calming influence he expected, however, and when he returned the next morning his wife once again accused him of trying to hurt her with the chile powder. According to the police report, the wife grabbed a 10-inch knife and gestured with it. Police say the husband called her bluff and said that if she wanted him dead he should just do it. Then she stabbed him.

The wife has been arrested and charged with domestic violence and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Her husband is expected to survive.
