If you are ever in New Mexico on Christmas Eve, plan to take an evening stroll among the luminarias or farolitos.  You’ll find them in every city, town, and village and even on the roof of a lone house out in the middle of nowhere.

    Happy New Year, dear MJ! Thank you for the whole year of wonderful inspiring culinary discoveries, your kind words, gestures and your friendship!
    I think I will swap the Christmas tree for luminarias next year… they look so beautiful!

    With all our travel, I didn’t get into my “NM State of Mind” with farolitos this year. I did make a green chile soup though for our festivities. Will post it up soon. Happy 2016, M.J.!

    Happy New Year to a woman who has taught me more about chile peppers than I thought possible.

    I hope 2016 is a wonderful year for you all.
