You need to eat these enchiladas from Southwest Diner
Order the stacked enchiladas platter at Southwest Diner, and when you’re asked New Mexico’s official state question – “Red or green?” – answer “Christmas.” Served side-by-side, each enchilada is doused in its respective spicy chile-based sauce and blanketed with velvety cheese. The red sauce is earthy and smooth while the thicker green sauce features the roasted, tangy flavor of Hatch chiles. When the two ooze together, they create a bonus sauce that alternates hits of both the smoky red and pungent green chiles.
