After two nights camping in Joshua Tree (CA), we were rather grubby and very tired when we drove into Las Cruces at about 8pm. Where could we get great local food without changing out of our hiking boots and baseball caps? Answer: Peppers Cafe, located in the indoor courtyard of the Double Eagle Restaurant, Old Town Mesilla. Order the Chile con Queso and the Big Jim Chile Relleno. Or the Plato San Juan or Juarez. Don't forget the margaritas--on the rocks, lots of salt. And enjoy the ambience of Old New Mexico as you tantalize your taste buds.
