    Kellie in SLO's Note:

    My parents lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico before I was born and my dad learned to make these. He didn't follow a recipe, just threw things in the pot, so it took a bit of figuring out. Dad used to drive to a little town called Chimayo and get a special chili powder for making these, that is why there is such a wide gap of chili powder in the ingredients (Chimayo chili powder is pretty potent stuff). The fried egg on top is what really makes these unique.

      This was very good. I particularly like the unique nature of the recipe. I'd like to try this with chimayo chili powder. There are online sources for it; I just didn't have time to order it. These are very filling. One was just about too much for me, and two filled up a hungry adult male.
