La Posta Cook Book

This original version of the La Posta de Mesilla Cook Book was created in 1971 by our beloved founder, Katy. On September 16, 1939, an entrepreneurial 25 year old Katy Griggs opened her “little chile joint” and named it La Posta. Her uncle, Edgar Griggs, loved his niece and admired her independent streak so much that he actually sold Katy the historic adobe property that would become La Posta for a mere “one dollar, love and affection”.
