A New Mexico Thanksgiving Dinner

 from @NMMagazine, a menu to have you giving thanks for the state’s bounty of singular ingredients

Back when the Pilgrims were still boys and girls in England, Don Juan de Oñate and his band of explorers enjoyed a feast of thanksgiving in 1598, near Las Cruces, as recorded by Gaspar Pérez de Villagrá, a poet who traveled with the expedition.
