...is "Red or Green?" This refers to whether you would like red or green chile sauce on your food. You may wish to ask your server which one is hotter that day and order accordingly depending on your tastes and tolerance. My personal favorite is green, as I find that green chiles have a 'butter-y' flavor I really enjoy. Not sure which to choose? Answer "Christmas" and you'll get half red and half green (but only in the northern part of the state; folks in the southern half will look at you like you're crazy).
