New Mexican is the best! - I love good chunky green chile on chicken enchiladas and chile verde with pork - medium hot. Another favorite is a marinated pork burrito smothered with red chile with pork. I love the flavor of the NuMex chiles (Big Jims, #64, Joe Parker, Chimayo, etc.) Red sauce made from soaked pods is much better than that made from chile powder.

Note: I'm noticing a trend here - with the New Mexicans voting for New Mexican and the Texans voting for Tex-Mex. Note: I'm formerly from Alamagordo, NM.

It depends on the place and my mood!

Tex-Mex blends the best of both!

New Mexican is the evolution of traditional Mexican food along the pallet and culture of their target market. Through trial and error they have catered to what the customers have requested and perfected a style that makes the most money.

I like BOTH! They each have a place and they both are good. I like true Mexican cooking as well!

One of my favorites in Tucson is not actually Tex-Mex nor New Mexican, but more Sonoran-style Mexican specializing more in the cooking of Central Mexico.

It's called Cafe Poca Cosa:

I have to go with Tex Mex I am a steak fanatic and Tex Mex cooking caters to this taste more. But New Mexican cooking offers up some of the best salsas and sauces in the world. Green Chille and Tomatillo bassed sauces rule. Now if you could blend a New Mexico Saucie' to flank a Tex-Mex Chef what a kitchen that would be!!!!!!!!!
