Santa Fe Recipes

Santa Fe's cuisine is justifiably world famous, and not just for the red and green chiles that star in an amazing array of regional dishes.

Traditional northern New Mexico foods like green chile stew and enchiladas blanketed with red chile are still handmade daily, as they've been for decades, in dozens of restaurants and eagerly devoured by locals and visitors alike. But many local chefs are experimenting in new ways with regional ingredients, creating a contemporary Santa Fe cuisine reflecting multiple influences. The result is an enticing and impressive feast of flavors found only in Santa Fe.

The recipes included here, contributed by some of Santa Fe's finest chefs, provide a sampler of our celebrated Santa Fe flavors. For recipe details & ingredients, click on the name of the recipe below.
