Culinary Experiences & Wineries in Albuquerque

ABQ365 Promo

New Mexican food is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. Try a cooking class to learn how to make this fusion cuisine based on Native American, Mexican and Spanish ingredients and techniques. As a diverse culinary destination, Albuquerque boasts a wide variety of restaurants sure to suit any foodie.

The star ingredient is the chile pepper, our state fruit. Harvested in the late summer while still green, the long, narrow peppers are served freshly roasted and peeled, or frozen for use throughout the year. Most commonly, you’ll find green chiles made into a spicy sauce that’s ladled over enchiladas, burritos and stuffed sopaipillas. (To sound like a local, just call it “green chile,” not “green chile sauce.”)

Albuquerque is one of the best culinary destinations with mom 'n pop restaurants offering green chiles fried into rellenos, piled on top of cheeseburgers, stuffed into breakfast burritos and made into a satisfying stew with hearty chunks of potato. Red chiles, left on the plants to ripen to a deep garnet color, are strung into ristras to dry. These dried red chiles are rehydrated and pureed into a velvety smooth sauce (again, simply called “red chile”) that adorns huevos rancheros, tamales and enchiladas—served stacked, not rolled.
