Chopes Bar & Cafe
Chile Relleno

Situated about 15 miles south of Mesilla on State Highway 28 is Chope’s where one would probably find the best ‘chile relleno’. They operate from a small comfortable home like-restaurant which gets crowded as soon as it opens every day. The ‘chilies rellenos’ are lightly breaded and served with three fried pods or can also be ordered along any of the combination plates. Milder than the rellenos are Chope’s red enchiladas or the green enchiladas but the one recommended is a stack, with a fried egg on top. They serve meat stuffed tamales which can be ordered three for a plate or as part of combination plate that includes an enchilada, a soft taco, rice, and beans. The menu over is a typical local one, featuring bowls of chili with or without beans or con queso (with cheese), as well as air weight sopaipillas.
