Discover Southern New Mexico
Tourists may come to southern New Mexico for the abundant hiking opportunities, but its cuisine also attracts visitors. Mexican and New Mexican cuisines are huge draws. Try the sopaipilla, a fried pastry stuffed with meat or refried beans, smothered with cheese and chile sauce, and served with Spanish rice. For lighter fare, consider soft blue corn tacos made with cheddar cheese, onion, tomato, lettuce and lean ground beef or shredded chicken. Traditional New Mexican food like green chile stew is also available. This soup-like dish is loaded with roasted green chile, pork, and potatoes, and it makes a hearty, savory meal by itself.
