Chili con queso...only different.

About 20 years ago I was in Cimmaron, NM and I had a version of chili con queso that I have never seen since. Rather than everything being blended together, the cheese was floating in blobs within the chili. Think lava lamp. I've never been able to find anything like it since. Is there any place in LA that serves something like it?

  1. Sadly, New Mexico-style food is not to be found in LA. Green Chile Stew in LA? Fuggedaboudit. I sent an inquiry to Jonathan Gold once, and he mentioned a place in Santa Barbara (don't have the name handy) in his reply, but we haven't fought our way through the traffic to get there yet. It might be easier to drive to Santa Fe in order to get a decent meal, but we'll give it a shot.
