I grew up in Albuquerque, NM but never have been in the five & dime (old Woolworths) on The Plaza in Santa Fe. If your looking for quirky gifts from The Land of Enchantment this is your place, BUT!!!!! If you can handle heat you must get the Frito Pie ($5) in the small cafeteria in the back of the store. Apparently is a Diner, Drive Ins & Dives location. She cuts the top of the Frito bag open, pours the chili on top of the chips, then some cheese, onions and jalapeños are by the soda machine if your want (I recommend the onions). Then head out to The Plaza and find a bench to people watch.
So simple and so satisfying. So great.
***A must do but the chili is spicy if your a light weight ;)
