Catron Culinary Creativity
Michael Rawl, the owner and operator of The Good Pie in Pie Town, has been busy practicing some culinary innovation. His latest creation is the New Mexico Grilled Sandwich. This is a mouthfull in more than one way. I was lucky enough to sample one yesterday.
Imagine the warm, thick, melted cheese of a grilled cheese sandwich, merged with the meaty satisfaction of a hamburger. Now imagine that taken a step further, and spice it up with authentic New Mexico green chilies, warm, crisp salty bacon, fresh crisp lettuce, and finally icy cold, fresh, ripe tomatoes. My mouth is watering just typing in this description. Michael is also serving the simpler cousin of this amazing burger—the New Mexico Green Chili Grilled Cheese Burger which is also delicious beyond words.
Culinary innovation is nothing new for Michael, who serves up the now famous New Mexico Apple Pie (you can get the recipe for that on his website). We’re always happy to celebrate innovation here in Catron County. Gourmet delights like these are part of makes living in, and visiting Catron County such a treat for all of us.
