New Mexico Thanksgiving

New Mexico flavors are highlighted with almost every meal in the land of enchantment, a Thanksgiving feast is no exception! It is always nice to see a New Mexican tradition and local flourishes add zest to the traditional bird and trimmings. Perhaps the turkey will be seasoned with red chile, or the dressing—or even the cranberries—will be laced with green.

This holiday menu has enough familiar dishes to satisfy your aunt from Illinois, but captures the flavors of New Mexico in many ways. Start with a humanely raised turkey for your table by checking at a local farmers’ market, co-op store, or small grocery like Keller’s in Albuquerque, or Kaune’s in Santa Fe. Then season it with a chile butter, which adds sumptuous flavor not only to the bird but to the drippings, for gravy. The gravy’s red sheen looks dramatic against classic, creamy mashed potatoes. Of course, there’s dressing: cornbread-based and packed with savory chorizo. The biscuits have the subtle scent of corn as well, from a portion of masa flour, more common to tortillas or tamales. The sweet-and-tangy cranberry relish surprises with figs and pistachios, the pride of the Alamogordo area. Start the meal with soup made from a local pumpkin, and end with New Mexico apples piled high in a pie.
Though we won’t all share the same table, we can share the same wishes for a bountiful harvest and celebratory dinner, and for good food to be available to all.
