Cuisine - New Mexican
This microwave version of peanut brittle is easier to prepare than most, but be sure to use a large bowl to keep the mixture from boiling over as the volume increases. The green chile heat is a nice complement to the sweet brittle.
This versatile sauce is basic to New Mexican cuisine. It is best with freshly roasted and peeled chile but can be made with canned, frozen or even dried green chile. Finely diced pork can be added but cook the sauce for an additional half hour. Use this sauce over enchiladas, burritos, or tacos. It will keep for about 5 days in the refrigerator and freezes well.
Here's a modern version of the ancient Mayan drink.
These wings are not a traditional New Mexican dish, but since it’s one of our favorites, and we serve it in New Mexico, we have dared to adopt it as one of our hot and spicy favorites. Because of the high sugar content in the sauce, use it toward the end of grilling so it doesn’t burn.
The versatility of canned green chile is demonstrated in this delicious salad.
This is my version of New Mexico's famous red chile sauce. Mixed with shredded pork, it is used as a tamale filling, but it is also ladled over the tamales as well as enchiladas, huevos rancheros, breakfast burritos, stuffed sopaipillas, chiles rellenos and almost anything else you can think of. You may not need four cups of the sauce for your recipe, but you might as well make the whole batch; freeze extra portions in small resealable plastic containers.
If venison is not available, substitute beef. It’s a lot easier to use canned black beans.
Ophelia’s chiles rellenos are the best on the island. They are almost always gone by mid-lunch, so don’t wait! The tomato sauce can be prepared one day in advance.
The "colorado" here refers to the red color of the chile rather than the state of the same name. These potatoes are commonly served in place of hash browns at breakfast as well as at lunch and dinner. They are especially tasty when made with new potatoes because of their creamy texture and taste. Substitute chopped green New Mexico chile for Papas con Chile Verde. If using new potatoes, double the number of potatoes.

This recipe combines two of my favorites—chile and popcorn. Adjust the heat of this candy by the type of chile you use. Make with New Mexican for a mild heat, cayenne for more fire and chile de arbol
for somewhere in between. Don’t use microwave popcorn because of its salt and fat content.
