Chilebrown at home

This is just a little wrap up from my recent trip to New Mexico. A reacquiring food item in most local restaurants was fry bread and green chile. Fry bread is a leavan bread which is deep fried. Fresh out of the fryer is is almost irresistible. I even bought a fry bread apple pie from a young street vendor.

One unusual stop was Speedy's Truck Stop. Our host swore they had the most delicious Navajo burgers. Let me tell you this; you did not leave hungry after this monstrosity. It was a half pound of very well done hamburger meat. It had a layer of very tasty green chile which was probably the highlight of this creation. Do not get me wrong, fry bread is tasty but it can wear on you after a couple of helpings.

Our last stop was the El Rancho hotel. It is a famous landmark on the old Route 66, It claims to be a stop of the movie stars. It definitely had a lot of character and was a fun place to visit. The theme of green chile popped up again with my steak and enchiladas. I really do like green chile.

I have had my fill of fry bread. I can never get enough of green chile though. My visit to New Mexico was tasty and filling. I would love to return some day.

I with you on green chile and I'm been thinking of whipping up a batch of chile verde.

I almost always order teak with an enchilada (carne asada a la tampiquena) when I see it, and have been known to go out of my way to try new versions.

Aaron, I like it better than a traditional baked potato for sure. New Mexico has sure loves their green chile. See you this Saturday I hope.
