Welcome to Taste New Mexico, we are glad you are here. Please take a minute to learn how this site came to be.
I was born and raised in New Mexico and have a passion for the unique flavors of the indigenous foods that are grown in our enchanting State.
At home I remember the aroma of fresh New Mexico green chilies roasting in my mother’s oven. I can close my eyes and still see her making homemade tortillas, cooking the dried New Mexico red chile pods, pureeing them in the blender and then working her magic with the traditional spices that she added: Garlic, onion, cumin and oregano. The aroma was heavenly!
Now that I’m grown, I see people come from all over the world to experience New Mexico. They fall in love with the enchanting landscape, cultural heritage and most of all the food!!!! Then they go back home and look for similar products that will transport them back to the enchantment of New Mexico and the culinary treasures they discovered while visiting here.
And that is the reason I embarked on this epicurean adventure, compiling all of my favorite New Mexico food products and making them available for you to buy wherever you are. I have made it my mission to send these authentic, traditional New Mexico products to every part of our country, from the North, the South, East and yes, even the West. Because, I have found that even our neighboring states do not know much about our seemingly well-kept culinary secret: The New Mexico red and green chile peppers!
I hope that you are one of the many people that share my passion for this cuisine and that you find what you are looking for at our online store. If not, I hope you will let me know and I will find it.
From time to time you might see unique and colorful, hand made gifts and gadgets that I've found while traveling around the US. Check back often as they are constantly changing.
I guarantee that the products available here are authentic, traditional and deliciously made in New Mexico.
