We (my wife and I, that is) are tossing around the idea of a trip somewhere to the Southwest in February, when I get a week off from teaching and we'll need a week off from winter. Ideally with a mix of the outdoorsy and time spent in nice scenic towns with good (vegetarian-friendly) food, on a non-lavish budget. Never been anywhere in that part of the world. Where should we go and what should we see? [more inside]

Help me get my red enchilada sauce on!

I have a terrific jar of a sort of paste that my husband made from dried New Mexico and guajillo chiles that were skinned, seeded, reconstituted, blended into a puree, then strained (or perhaps run through a food mill - I was asleep). I'd like to use this paste as an ingredient in an awesome red enchilada sauce. Do you have recipes to share?

Santa Fe to Abiquiu transportation

I have a friend who will be traveling to Monastery of Christ in the Desert. She does not drive and is looking for ways to get to the monastery from the Santa Fe airport. The monastery is about 75 miles away and they can only suggest "rent a car" on their Visiting Us page. How much would a taxi ride cost (if they would go that far)? Are there services that specialize in this route?

Sights and activities for a two week trip to New Mexico for a budget traveller bumming a free ride.

Last minute trip down to New Mexico came out of no where but I'm leaving tomorrow with a backpack and wanted to know what one could do for a couple weeks. I don't even have enough time to grab a guidebook and my only plans so far are to read The Border Trilogy. The ride is stopping overnight somewhere Utah then finally in Taos. I've got little money to spend regardless, what should I see and do here? I'm looking for a relaxed, unique, authentic Southwest American experience.
