Santa Fe restaurant Rancho de Chimayó serves this dish with long-simmered posole corn, stewed pinto beans, and a bit of shredded lettuce and tomato for color. Chimayó chiles can be hard to get and expensive, but more readily available New Mexico chiles, both whole and ground, can be easily swapped in. The dish can also be made in a slow-cooker.
