10 Foods Every New Mexican Craves When They Leave New Mexico
Take a moment to think of your favorite things about New Mexico. Were certain foods anywhere at the top of that list? We bet at least one favorite dish was! It’s a sad thought to imagine not having ready access to it but there are quite a few New Mexicans who have this very experience after moving away. Sure, you might be able to find some variation of these dishes in other states but there’s nothing quite like the version you’ll find here in New Mexico.
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/
