Caliche’s Frozen Custard In New Mexico Is Home To An Ice Cream Sundae You Won’t Find Anywhere Else
There’s no doubt green chile is king in New Mexico. Stop by any restaurant in the Land of Enchantment and you’re bound to find some hint of the piquant pepper on the menu.
While it’s a popular option in savory dishes, you may also encounter chile in an unusual section: desserts. These particular menu options are few and far between but they can be found occasionally in restaurants and dessert shops. One such location is over at Caliche’s Frozen Custard, located in southern New Mexico.
