You don't have to be a native New Mexican to create delicious authentic dishes. And you don't even have to be your grandmother to make food that brings back wonderful memories.


For over half a century and three generations, we have been compiling Bueno recipes including some of our Grandmother Filomena Baca's best. We hope you will enjoy trying both traditional favorites and nouveau ones, new recipes based on "old" ideas. In no time at all, you too can become an expert in New Mexican cuisine and your family and friends will find delight in your dishes. Happy cooking! We hope you will enjoy the flavors of New Mexico.


Cook Green Chile To 165°

All frozen green chile peppers and red chile purees (in retail containers and food service bulk packs) are uncooked, like many frozen vegetables. Do not consume uncooked chile. Cook to 165° F before eating. And enjoy the N.M. tradition!!
