We are spoiled when it comes to amazing Mexican food here in the Southwest, but each part of the Southwest has its own special style of Mexican food. We’re currently craving New Mexico-inspired recipes, which tend to include lots of spice and smoky flavors. Below you can find a few delicious recipes that feature the vibrant flavors of New Mexico.
