calamari chili pepper glaze

Fried calamari lightly coated chili pepper glaze

I asked people in the know where to dine near Mesa, Az and responses were mixed. While driving down Country Club Dr I spotted the Blue Adobe Santa Fe Grille and told Chris to turn around, I found the place to eat. What a find it was. They get hatch and red chiles from New Mexico and process them in the kitchen. Then cook from scratch. No wonder their food is rated best on many sites and Phoenix Magazine. Nice to stumble on it without preconceived notions.
