Little Anita's New Mexican Foods

A bit of New Mexico in a strip mall, Little Anita's is run by an Albuquerque family with a 30-year history in the restaurant business. The space is small and only offers counter service, but both the red and green chiles are multi-layered and flavorful, and the food features plenty of Southwestern touches, such as blue corn in the enchiladas and a roster of stuffed sopaipillas. The carne adovada is the house specialty, but as any true Denverite knows, you can never pass up the sopaipillas.
