Usually when one thinks of frozen custard one thinks of the Midwest, but down here in the south we also know how to enjoy our own; only we spice it up a bit with hatch chile, New Mexico’s most delicious tradition.
I have to add this stop to the Foodie Trail because you won’t be able to get it anywhere else…and you have to!
Caliche’s is the Home of the Green Chile Sundae, and its New Mexican sundae specialty does not disappoint. They recommend you add salted pecans to complement the creaminess of the vanilla custard, and spiciness of the green chile sauce.
Sweet bread is a local delicacy gifted to us daily and fresh from the ovens at Loredo’s Bakery in Tularosa, NM.
It is a special treat during the Fall and Winter seasons, when the mornings and evenings are cool and crisp.
Pan Dulce is excellent for that late after dinner snack too!
Loredo’s Bakery is also The Place to eat the best tamales in the area, but only available on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays…and the go fast, so be there early.
