Am I Blue?
Yes I’m blue.
Heck yeah I am! A blue ribbon winner, that is.
Long time readers might remember last year when I brought New Mexico cooking to my local county fair. I whipped up a batch of biscochitos, the New Mexico State Cookie, and they were awarded the blue ribbon.
This year, I decided to bring New Mexico back to the fair by entering a special “Culinary Arts” competition.
The event? Enchiladas.
I love making my version of enchiladas with marinated chicken and Hatch green chiles. So I signed up.
Today, I was quite nervous as the judges sampled my offering and wrote notes and counted points.
And then they awarded me first place!! Whoooooo!
How I beat the guy who made his own mole sauce, I’ll never know.
But what I do know is this. Anyone who wants me to whip up a batch? It’s gonna cost you, cuz I’ve got a double blue ribbon winning kitchen.
Oh Fair New Mexico…boo yah!
