In New Mexico, we take our chile very seriously. If we’re not eating it, we’re likely talking about it or it’s somewhere traveling the open spaces of our minds. Nonetheless, it’s part of who we are and what it is to be New Mexican. So much so, that we have our own state question, “Red or Green”. To the common bystander, the phrase would suggest something Christmas-like. Well, we have that covered as well. Sometimes we like to incorporate both colors into our favorite New Mexican dishes. When that occurs, we call it Christmas.
When a New Mexican moves away from New Mexico, they will quickly learn that our heritage and cuisine stops at the borders of our state, unfortunately.
