People Drive From All Over For The Green Chile Cheeseburgers At This Charming New Mexico Restaurant
Chile is serious business in New Mexico. Walk past any grocery store or restaurant in the height of chile season and you’re bound to catch a whiff of them roasting over a fire outside. The combination of smokiness, crisp flavors, and a surprising heat that would make any diner sweat bullets are exactly why you can find it as a primary ingredient in plenty of dishes.
