Could you picture life in Portales, New Mexico back before political entities like the counties of Chaves, Roosevelt and Socorro even existed on the map? We are taking way back, like before celebrities such as Mitt Romney were even born. You can easily imagine the auras of ancient generations when you check out this town.
The first explorers arrived in New Mexico to mold a better life for themselves and their families. It was the definition of a high risk, high reward situation. These stout guys and gals had to face one tangible problem after another. The ordinary farmed crops and barn animals which these ladies and gentlemen used to appreciate were simple but repetitious by today’s standards. New Mexicans defaulted to beef or pecans because all this was readily available at harvest and across the seasons.
In the present day without any hesitation, New Mexicans will go out of their way to eat at grub holes run by culinarians who know how to cook using local beef, lamb and onions. A bounty of new ethnic influences has taken the restaurants nearby to the next level. We hope everyone can celebrate how top-notch life is now in Portales, New Mexico!
