Even the fast-food places advertise green chile on their menu! I was raised in Phoenix, but came to Albuquerque from San Diego, California, in 1992. It reminded me of Phoenix, but had four seasons and snow. I’d never been around snow before! I remember, on a visit back to San Diego, I told my friends there that the state drink of New Mexico must be a margarita — because you can order one almost anywhere! For fun, I enjoy exploring the landscape and Route 66.
