I dont care for New Mexico food at all. Its more of a regional thing, not real mexican food.

California, Texas and Arizona win.
Looks like Denny's wow what Denny's are you eating at ? Or do you not have a clue what you are talking about?

Putting Texas, and Arizona above New Mexico solidifies you don't have a clue. LMAO

Tex Mex is a mediocre at best, Texas is known for BBQ. Arizona, what exactly is Arizona known for? Tea?

California style Mexican reminds me too much of Chipotle which is basically the white version of mexican food.

By the way do you even have any background culturally at all relevant to your opinion? Are you of hispanic origin?

New Mex, Mex is not like any food in Mexico. Sadies looks like nachos and bad tacos plus burgers. Not real Mexican food. Is Sadie doesnt sound Spanish...

Texas has TexMex and real Mexican food (shares a much longer border with Mexico than any other state.
Arizona also shares a border w/Mexico and isnt tainted by the green chile.
California just simply does it the best....thats not hard to see. (Chipotle is out of Denver btw)

For one : New Mexican food is Mexican food with a twist , it stands on it's own two. Green Chili / Red chili enough said.

For two : New Mexico/ Albuquerque also has tons of "authentic" mexican restaurants as well it's not only New Mexican.

For three: I'll even go as far and same NM Food is superior to "authentic". I think of as NM Food as " Mexican food on steroids "

For four : Tex Mex is average, I got family in Texas, and family in New Mexico, trust me, Texas is best at BBQ.

For Five : Arizona shares the border with Mexico? And New Mexico doesn't? What is AZ even known for?? You dodged that question.

For Six: California style Mexican food = Chipotle style Mexican food (white version of mexican food w/ guacamole)

There you go , that's plenty of reasons for you. You get D for the day. Study a little harder next time

You also forgot to answer if you even were of hispanic origin? Or are you just a white guy with an opinion?

The people who created it don't consider themselves Mexican? What do you mean?

You do know New Mexico has a very large Mexican + Mexican American population correct?

I'll leave it at this :

California style = http://hackthemenu.com/wp-content/up...tle-nachos.jpg

Texas style = http://www.kcet.org/living/food/imag...exmex1-600.jpg

New Mexico style = https://www.google.com/search?q=New+...ed=0CAcQ_AUoAg

Coming from someone who actually lived it culturally , someone verified and knows what they are talking about.

Go grab a taste of New Mexico and you will never talk AZ, TX, CA again .

Albuquerque > All others all day, no competition, I say it with confidence.

chipotle is from colorado.

carne asada fries, a mission burrito, a california burrito, korean tacos, or fish tacos are better representatives of California-Mexican food.

I've never been there but when I read about New Mexico and specifically the hispanic population there, people differentiate between Mexicans and the New Mexican hispanics.

Never said chipotle wasn't from Colorado, what I am saying is California style Mexican food reminds me of Chipotle

The difference you ask ? The difference is that some are Mexican Americans (born and raised in the USA) other's aren't from the USA (immigrants).
