What Are the Differences between Southern and Northern New Mexican Cuisine?

I posted this on the Southwest board where it seems to have either stumped the cognoscenti or bored the living daylights out of them. A bit esoteric, but thought I'd give it a shot over here.

In any event, I'm more familiar with the cuisine of southern New Mexico than that of the north. For those of you in the know about both, what are the chief differences?

I gather that blue corn tortillas are more common in the north, and I get the sense, perhaps erroneously, that the food of the south is more down-home and traditional while that of the north is more innovative and sophisticated.

But what else?
