FLAVORS OF NEW MEXICO

Delivered to your door

It is difficult (or impossible) to get well-loved specialty food items from New Mexico once you leave the state. Blue corn meal, green and red chile snacks, masa, sopapilla mix, and chicos aren't common fare in other parts of the country. However, there are local businesses who make outstanding products and happily ship nationwide.
