Most people enjoy food, but New Mexican LOVE chile. We put it on everything…no really EVERYTHING! I know New Mexico is the only place where you can find chicken fried steak with green chile or that every street corner contains a McDonalds, which may not seem to unusual, until you realize that they advertise chile:
Chile does come with a regional taste, if you don’t believe me just ask any native New Mexican. To reduce the travel or to just try some other region delights checkout the New Mexico Restaurant Week. Four “major” cities participate: Taos, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Las Cruces. Each city gets a week to showcase their food.
