Nellie's Cafe
Huevos Rancheros

Open only for lunch and breakfast Nellie’s Café serves traditional Mexican fare from Tuesday to Friday starting at 8 in the morning. The family run restaurant is in Las Cruces, the center of the chile country. Danny Ray Hernandez, the chef and Nellie’s son, makes vivid salsas using five to seven different types of chile. His specialty is the breakfast menu which includes ‘Huevos Rancheros’ (scrambled with jalapenos) and eggs with chile and meat served with either red or green chile or combination of both known as ‘Christmas’. According to Nellie, the chiles have become hotter in the recent years due to the dry growing conditions.
