Kelley Cleary Coffeen, PhD, is a food consultant, blogger, and cookbook author who has been fascinated with – and immersed herself in – Southwestern cooking all her life. Following the call of the coyote, she’s moved between Colorado, Arizona, and even stopped to “mess with” Texas for a time before settling in southwestern New Mexico. These days she’s less than hour from the Mexican border – as the roadrunner sprints – in one direction, and just a tamale’s throw from the world-famous Hatch Green Chile fields in the other.
