Not too many days left until Christmas Eve. Many of you are in the midst of menu preparation, trying new recipes and digging up old ones. While our family tends to change things up on Christmas Day, our Christmas Eve meal stays the same every year.

Christmas is not just a holiday in New Mexico, it's also a menu option. Red and green chile are in every dish in our home state. If you mix them together that's Christmas! So it's safe to say New Mexico is one of the only places you can celebrate Christmas year-round!

Happy Holidays Yummies!
