Description: Since the mid-1980s, Southwest cuisine has undergone an explosion of creativity. The region's professional chefs, responding to the local ingredients and culture, have elaborated on the area's best-loved traditional specialties, giving bold new twists to traditional red and green chile, yellow pumpkin, and blue corn.
