We have all grown up here is the US celebrating Halloween. We dress up in fun costumes and go trick or treat. Other than that Halloween never meant much to me. I think somewhere in the commercialism and the folk lore the meaning got lost.
That's why I love the Day of the Dead celebrated in Tlaquepaque. It's totally about honoring the ones who have passed, offering good food and drink and dressing up like walking dead. Not zombies, but like skeleton faces. I also love the beautiful alters with all the flickering candles. A truly moving and beautiful sight to see. Now add Tlaquepaque, with all its alcoves and courtyards and you have the feel of a spiritual place that makes it easy to remember our loved one's past. You can "feel" the candle light and the ancient ones walking around you. In a way Day of the Dead is a celebration to help us remember the sacredness of life. In Mexico they call it Dia de los Muertos. I look forward to this day every year. It moves me and I am inspired by the celebration.
Come join us November 1st and 2nd, starting at 4:30 in Tlaquepaque. El Rincon will have two booths and a Patio Bar. One booth serving Colada Morada a DOD drink and Pan de la Muertos a DOD sweet bread. Another booth serving our delicious Beef Tacos and Vanilla Churros. Our Patio Bar will be serving our world famous Margarita Magnifica, Mexican Beers and Sangria. Find us along the Calle and around Tlaquepaque.
¡Allá nos vemos!

We gave it our best shot! El Rincon's Green Chili was really good, made just the same as past years, but the judges had a different standard. We didn't win the Judges Award or People's Choice in this years Great Sedona Chili Cook-Off. To us it seems some people can't get Mom's Chili from childhood off their minds or taste buds. But our standard for Southwestern "Arizona Style Green Chili" was a winner for all El Rincon fans, old and new. We want to thank our fans for their great words of encouragement and especially the "wow that's good" we heard from so many of you.
El Rincon Chefs Chaly and Luis worked hard for days in advance to bring three different chili's to the competition. Our winning El Rincon Chili Verde with Beef was the center of our entries in the contest. We also served our "Mango Black Bean Cold Green Chili," which was a great hit with vegetarians and people who think they don't like it hot. A new entry this year was our "Red Chili with Pork," made the old fashioned way with course ground pork and blended red chili pods. The Red Chili has a smooth, full bodied pork/chili flavor you don't ever get with chili powder. Then, of course, we served Mango Sorbet to cleanse the palette between tastings. We know this was one of our secrets to winning the last two years, but was copied by several competitors this year lessening our edge.
We take great pride in our part to help the "Imagination Library" for the Rotary Club of Sedona. The library gets a big boost from the record number of chili tasters who heard El Rincon was the restaurant to taste, because we won the last two years in a row. We are humble and know you can't win them all; however, in losing this year we learned valuable insight about winning next year. So, what can we say? "Congratulations to the winners," and look out! Because we'll be back! Muchas Gracias, Amigos

Giant Sycamore trees grace each end of El Rincon's delightful outside dining patio. Their large, three-to-five point green leaves create a marvelous, cool, shady canopy over our eight table patio. A huge trunk with marbleized hues of gray, brown and cream adorns the patio on the north end. These beautiful trees and El Rincon have literally grown together for 36 years. Our Facebook cover photo shows the north Sycamore tree today, and if you follow the time line back to our opening you will see a photo of El Rincon in 1978. Over the years this Sycamore tree has nearly tripled in diameter, doubled in height and is gradually encroaching on that corner of the patio.
The Sycamore tree is a symbol of perseverance and adaptation to one's environment. The Sycamore is an ancient tree being one of the oldest species of trees on the planet. Like the Sycamore tree, El Rincon has had the perseverance to hold on to what we do best - serving Arizona Style Mexican Cuisine. We have specially adapted our very small kitchen to serve an ever increasing number of guests year over year. Our goal is to insure top quality and consistency every time you visit.
Next time you're sitting on our patio enjoying a great Arizona Style Mexican dinner in the cool shade of these ancient Sycamores, give thanks to Abe Miller for the foresight to build around them, and the currentTlaquepaquemanagement for preserving these masterpieces of nature all aroundTlaquepaque.
