The official state question of New Mexico is, "Red or green?" At La Panza Cafe, there's no wrong answer when it comes to your chili preference. The red is rich and creamy and goes oh so good with honey and sopapillas ($10.25) while the green is straight from N.M. La Panza does enchiladas ($14.25) with blue corn and the posole is popping.
