What to bring home from NM?

I'm headed to Alamogordo, NM for Christmas and wondering what Chowhounds would recommend I add to my shopping list of food items to bring home. I love exploring local grocery stores for interesting food and condiments. Are there items that are only available in NM/the Southwest?

  1. Chile. If you can do frozen green chile is fantastic. Red chile can be purchased powdered or in whole pods.

    Pistachios - is a local pistachio farm with a store.

    Tortillas - I liked Roberto's or Albuquerque Tortilla Company when I lived there.
