ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – On Tuesday, New Mexico State Fair officials announced its list of competitors for this year’s Green Chile Cheeseburger Challenge.
Restaurants from all over New Mexico will compete next Monday. The list includes last year’s winner, Fuddruckers, from Albuquerque.
Second place winner, Carlsbad’s Church Street Grill, did not make this year’s list. Nor did third place winner, Santa Fe’s Cowgirl Barbecue.
“Not only is this a very fun and spirited competition, it is an opportunity for a restaurant to take over the title of ‘best green chile cheeseburger,’ which we know in New Mexico is quite a coveted designation and impressive accomplishment considering the number of fantastic restaurants in our state,” said Dan Mourning, New Mexico State Fair General Manager.
