There’s Nothing Better Than This Mouthwatering Enchilada Trail In New Mexico

The only thing better than a road trip is taking a food-themed road trip! Enchiladas are one of the most popular dishes in New Mexico. So, we decided to create a drive that unites some of the state’s best places to score enchiladas into one journey.

This loop covers 525 miles and has a drive time of 9 hours and 10 minutes. That might sound long but (we assume) there is a limit to the number of enchiladas you can eat in one day, so it’s meant to span several days. You’ll find plenty of attractions, gorgeous landscapes and – of course – delicious enchiladas on this trip through Northwestern New Mexico. Here is the map. What are you waiting for?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Where do you go when an enchilada craving hits?

We realize that this drive only covers one corner of the state, otherwise you’d be driving for weeks! However, these articles on scrumptious Mexican restaurants and the best taco spots are more geographically comprehensive. You may also be interested in exploring New Mexico’s burrito byway.

Bring your appetite!
