US Cooking Tour Stop 4: NEW MEXICO

A couple years ago my family was on a RT 66 road trip to the Grand Canyon. My parents were also on their own road trip, driving back to Oklahoma from their vacation to California. After we planned the trip we realized that we would both be traveling the same road on the same day and would…
