This year Joe and I have gone to several fall festivals around town. We’ve been to Irish Fest, the Plaza Art Fair and Old Settlers Day. It’s a great way to spend a day at any of these events. We’ve had some great festival food which got me craving a NM favorite Frito Pie. Frito Pie is a staple at most festivals in NM. We eat it straight from the bag and the chili has to be New Mexican. It’s traditionally served with grated cheese and onions upon request. When I make it for myself, I like to add some shredded lettuce and diced tomato to the mix. It’s Muy Bueno! I’d like to give a shout out to the ladies at the Desert Rose Center in downtown Tucumcari, thank you for the beautiful Route 66 swatch of material. It goes perfect with my NM Frito Pie!
