SABROSO - NEW MEXICAN CUISINE
New Mexican cuisine, while similar in some ways to Mexican cooking, has its own unique flavors that are driven by the inclusion of New Mexico’s world famous green chiles. These chiles can be roasted, stuffed, diced, smoked and included in virtually any recipe. In Soutwestern cooking, both red and green chile are very popular ingredients in everything from enchiladas and burritos to chile rellenos and chimichangas. Gorditas, tamales, albondigas soup and carne adovada are also popular meals among the locals.
