Cooking of the American West & Southwest
Bizcochitos (Anise Cinnamon Sugar Cookies)
Bizcochitos – delicate anise-flavored sugar cookies dipped in cinnamon sugar - are the state cookie of New Mexico.
Carne Adovada (Red Chile Pork Stew)
Pork stewed in a sauce flavored and thickened with ground dried chiles, this dish is just that simple. It is the essence of seasonal winter cooking -- using the dried, and thus preserved, chiles from the summer and fall harvest. Serve with corn tortillas and a tossed green salad or sautéed greens and you'll stay warm all winter long.
