What Is the National Dish of New Mexico?

New Mexico is one of the great food states. It has a plethora of wonderful dishes that are more or less indigenous, and the cuisine scene in general is just marvelous. All of which got me wondering just what dish is the one New Mexicans take greatest pride in. Is it the green chile cheeseburger? Posole? Green chile stew? Stacked enchiladas with a fried egg on top? The Navajo taco? The stuffed sopaipilla? Tamales? Chile rellenos? Something else altogether?

Seeing as how I'm not a New Mexican but a mere Texan who likes to toss the mountain lion among the sheep, I'll not cast a vote but simply wait for the wool to fly.
