OK, I'll admit it! I'm a Green Chile Cheeseburger addict, but who can blame me? I don't know if there is anything better. There are restaurants around New Mexico that have attempted to improve on this culinary delight and many have succedded. Do you remember the Green Monster? Now that was an amazing burger, unfortunately they are no longer in business. If you want a spectaular Green Chile Burger try the 2010 New Mexico State Fair Cook-Off winner, ABQ Brew Pub's Southwestern Burger with Tempura Green Chile (the recipe and instuctions for Tempura Green Chile are listed below). It is an awesome burger, here is a Green Chile Cheeseburger recipe for you to try it at home. Enjoy!

Frito Pie® is a New Mexico favorite, you can find this almost everywhere but many locals say the only way to eat a Frito Pie is from the bag of Fritos. All of the ingredients are added to the "one serving" bag of chips and you enjoy them from there. This is a piece of every New Mexican's childhood!

I remember as a young girl heading back home from a family picnic on warm summer day in Jemez Springs, the highlight of the trip was stopping for fry-bread at one of the road side markets. I couldn't wait until we got home and my mom would make Indian Tacos. Depending upon where in New Mexico you are from you may call it a Navajo taco, Pueblo taco or Tewa taco, which really isn't a taco but more like a tostada. But it doesn't matter what you call it, it is still delicious!
