Get ready for a smackdown New Mexico style, as Edible Magazine hosts the “Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown”. The culinary battle has begun with the final showdown happening on September 9th.
“‘The Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown’ is in its fourth year, and basically we bring together the chef community – it used to just be Santa Fe and now it’s all of New Mexico invited to participate for the first fifteen people who throw their hat into the ring,” says Stephanie Cameron, Publisher of Edible Magazine.
The first round is an online voting round. On August 17th, the top seven contestants will move onto the finals, September 9th.
Edible Magazine is offering a ‘passport’ which gives users $3 off burgers which are part of the challenge. People have the opportunity to win prizes and at the end of the event, there will be one large grand prize giveaway to one ‘passport’ holder.
