New Mexico Restaurants & Cuisine

A surprisingly diverse "food culture"

New Mexicans are proud of their culinary heritage, and you will find this pride reflected in the special ingredients, recipes and dishes that make New Mexican food both unmistakable and delicious. New Mexican cuisine is a mixture Spanish, Native and Mexican cuisines, but make no mistake, it is not Mexican food, nor is it TexMex. New Mexican food is characterized by the use of ingredients that grow well in this arid, sunny climate, including blue corn, squash, beans and of course, chile.
