SANTA FE: Green chile cheeseburger
The chile pepper—spelled with an "e"—is one of the official state vegetables (along with the pinto bean) of New Mexico. Locally grown and roasted, it is also a state obsession. Visitors will find 'em pureed atop enchiladas; stuffed, battered, and fried into chiles rellenos; and diced upon cheeseburgers, even at fast-food franchises. We head to the outskirts of Santa Fe to a neon-lit diner that looks like a film noir set, the Bobcat Bite. The burger is simple enough, but delicious: The cook layers in a load of fire-flavored chopped chile underneath the creamy cheese, producing a heavenly combination when the cheese melts among the peppers and into the crevices of the crusty burger down below.
