Chile en Nogada
Owner, Roberto Timoteo Cordova created the restaurant in what once was the original Cordova family home, built in 1939. The recipes of his mother and grandmother are used to prepare delicious dishes, from the carne adovada, enchiladas, fajitas and more, to deserts like Grandma Elena's Sopa.
Price Range: $7 - $20. Gluten free options available.
Casa Chimayó offers an extensive menu that accommodates all tastes and heat tolerance levels. New Mexico chiles are locally grown from the original seeds of his family's Chimayó farm. If you prefer not to indulge in the HOT chile dishes, you can ask for the Ranchero Sauce to add just the right flavor and be gentle on your tongue.
The salsa, tortillas and chips are freshly made in-house daily. Enjoy wines, beers and unique cocktails, such as our signature Agave Margaritas.
The warm and welcoming setting, the deeply rooted family history, and delicious food make for an all-round enjoyable, authentic Santa Fe dining experience.
"Not only is the location’s history deeply evidenced on the restaurant’s walls and mantelpieces—the heirloom photographs provide a visual CliffsNotes on the history of El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro—but the dishes and presentation tell the same story." -- Zane Fischer, Santa Fe Reporter.
