The diverse dining scene is a melting pot of Spanish, Mexican, Cowboy, Mediterranean, and Pueblo Native American influences. Earthy tamales, enchiladas, and chiles rellenos are classic Southwestern offerings. The official New Mexico state question, “Red or green?” asks what chili sauce you want smothered on your dish. (Red is more pungent, green is packed with heat.) For a taste of both, the marriage of red and green is known as Christmas. Margaritas are abundant on drink menus, alongside craft brews and award-winning local sparkling wines.
