Chile From New Mexico Is A Unique Gourmet Gift

As anyone who has explored culinary delights of the desert southwest will tell you, New Mexico has its own special style of authentic cooking.  The texture and flavor are so unique, it's difficult to explain how it tastes to someone who has never experienced it.

When I moved to New Mexico in the early nineteen-eighties, I was immediately drawn to the robust flavor chile added to simple things like eggs or a cheeseburger!  After years of living there and eating food prepared by friends and neighbors, I took for granted all the taste bud as well as aromatic stimulation chile provides.  I miss it!

Here is my wife's version of "huevos rancheros" with sides of potatoes and refried beans.  Bon Appetit!
