Here Are The 16 Dishes You Have To Eat In New Mexico Before You Die

New Mexico doesn’t just have signature dishes – we have our own cuisine. Sure, you can find some of these foods beyond our borders. But it’s more enjoyable to eat these dishes where they were invented — or perfected! (Fine, we’re biased.) So, if you want a taste of New Mexico, tuck into these 16 dishes. Please note that they are not ranked in order of culinary superiority.

How many of these have you eaten? What other food or drinks would you add to this list?
