land of enchantment

Our last visit was over a year ago. Its winter and its Christmas so there will be penty of new things for the little guy to see and do. This holiday season in New Mexico is spectacular as far as I'm concerned. We will eat plenty of chile. Visit plenty of pueblos. Enjoy the archtecture. And bask in the beauty of the landscape....but I think my favorite is going to be eating tons of chile.

And when you order both red and green its called "Christmas Style" or "a la Navidad"




Some have refered to this style as "wet" but in New Mexico it is typically called 'smothered'.


This guys blog covers a lot of resturants I might just have to checkout. I got the burrito picture from there.

Oh, I'm sure you're going to enjoy every moment of you visit in the homeland! When do you leave? I'm sure the pup can't wait for it all too.

Well, green chile is ce3rtainly addictive. We did the Manhattan/NM thing for quite awhile. Glad to live now in NM full-time and go the other way to visit!
This comment is from a nonBlogger, with a link only back to my site via my inserting it in this place by handwriting the coding to give a link back MotherPie which is a real hassle and involves a lot of cut/paste.

Blogging has stimulated conversation among virtual/real friends but Blogger, by altering the commenting structure, has limited comments only to Google's bloggers using the Blogger platform. Crummy move, Google/Blogger. See my post on this: Blogger Comment Changes Stink. Period. Use Haloscan for commenting - the link is in my post comments.

beautiful pictures--the lights look amazing. So does the burrito!

Tavolini said...

as soon as I hear "smothered" I think waffle house lingo and onions...

doggybloggy said...

motherpie: lucky you...I 'feel' incarcerated in NYC

Tavolini: thats funny I know that lingo but dont they say "scattered" as in 'scattered all over'...I love the huddle house cheeseburger....I had some many many years ago and I still remember them

Tanya Kristine said...

Real Live Lesbian said...

I've always wanted to go...you make it sound wonderful!

Plus the food!!!!

~Fathairybastard~ said...

That looks wonderful... I mean the food and the trip. I love that part of the world, and that food. Big envy.

Tavolini said...

Scattered, Smothered, Covered, Chunked, Topped, Diced & Peppered. :)

Lara Croft said...

Why is it called New Mexico and what was wrong with the old one?

doggybloggy said...

Tanya K: arizona has different flora and fauna...

Real Live Lesbian: you should go it is so serene

Fathairy: you are close enough I though you would have been to the bases there at least...

Tavolini: hey you would know those places are down in your neck of the woods...LOL thats too funny...

Laracroft: because it was an extension of mexico before it became a state, Congress admitted New Mexico as the 47th state in the Union on January 6, 1912...

Beth said...

pinknest said...

Mel said...

You are after my own heart because I truly believe a vacation should be all about eating LOL!!!

Dana said...

I really should not visit your blog before I eat breakfast - especially since the closest "Mexican" restaurant is Taco Bell.

Enjoy your holiday!

You can start your own restaurant just by advertising with your blog! Your food looks great!

Dave said...

What I would give for a hot New Mexico Christmas!

HAR said...

I went to New Mexico about 20 years ago when my friend was stationed there. It was a real pleasure. Apart from the airline losing my luggage.
Have the BESt time and Merry Christmas, if you celebrate.

doggybloggy said...

Is there a Best Food Blog Award? How long did you live in New Mexico? I've heard it's beautiful. My H worked in Texas on the Rio Grande for many years and he raves about the landscape, which I think is similar?
