Introduction

A traditional New Mexican food around winter time. Good for you and not too bad on calories. It isn't hard to make, but does take some time, but will last a while. Spice it up with chili and add some squeeze lime or lemon for more flavor. A traditional New Mexican food around winter time. Good for you and not too bad on calories.
