The Southwestern region style of cooking typically refers to southern California, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Texas. And unlike many other regional foods this comes from a unique melting pot of cultures in the creation of these recipes. The driving influence is its entirely Spanish and Native American history. And at the heart of this seasoning is the chile.
The base ingredients used in Southwestern cuisine are beans (especially black beans and pinto beans), cilantro, avocados, hominy limes, rice, pine nuts, pork and corn and flour tortillas. The New Mexico region may be best known for it’s Green Chiles and their unique New Mexican cuisine while closely resembling Southwestern cuisine is really quite unique in its own right.
