New Mexico State Dish (Recipe)
Frijoles (Official Vegetable/Side Dish)
Frijole beans can accompany almost any dish imaginable in New Mexico, and are often served with rice, a main course, and salad. They're a standard daily food, and many New Mexicans have frijoles almost every day. With corn tortillas, leftover frijoles and red chili sauce are a common quick snack or meal. The dish can be as simple as cooked pinto beans and lard, though bacon, onion, garlic, and sometimes a little chili powder can be added.
