ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Insults dished out by Emmy Award-winning TV host and food critic Anthony Bourdain on an episode of CNN’s “Parts Unknown” have stirred up outrage in New Mexico.

The sharp-tongued chef and writer lashed into the “World Famous” Frito pies sold at Santa Fe’s well-known Five & Dime General Store’s snack bar.

Bourdain says the dish tasted as if it were made with canned Hormel Chili and a “day-glow orange cheese-like substance.” He then charged that the local favorite isn’t even a New Mexico meal, but rather a Texas creation. He says New Mexicans should leave the recipe to the Texans.

Mike Collins, store manager of the Five & Dime, says Bourdain was “completely wrong” on the store’s Frito pie. He says their version is made from homemade chile grown in New Mexico and remains popular.
