My parents lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico before I was born and my dad learned to make these. He didn't follow a recipe, just threw things in the pot, so it took a bit of figuring out. Dad used to drive to a little town called Chimayo and get a special chili powder for making these, that is why there is such a wide gap of chili powder in the ingredients (Chimayo chili powder is pretty potent stuff). The fried egg on top is what really makes these unique.
