Meanwhile, ELEMI which keeps racking up the accolades, made the magazine's list and scored the coveted Plate Magazine cover for its made-from-scratch blue corn maize tortillas imported from Jocotitlán and Tlaxcala, Mexico.

It's no secret that borderland is home to some of the best Mexican food in the Southwest. Over the years, many local eateries have been attracting chefs such as Padma Lakshmi and Patti Jinich and entities like The Food Network and Texas Monthly, to name but a few.
