They are descendants of a local pioneer family in the historic Mesquite District of Las Cruces. The sisters grew up with many local customs and traditions for Christmas. On this segment of a two-part interview we learn about some of these traditions and recipe secrets for biscochos, menudo, red chile and tamales.
