"Green or Red?" New Mexico Local Custom Tip by KevinAdams

New Mexico Local Customs: 27 reviews and 33 photos

You might find it strange to be asked "would you like green or red?" All this means is would you like green or red chile on whatever you ordered. Trick is...sometimes the red chile is hotter and sometimes the green is hotter. You have to ask. Green or red is a statewide "ketchup or mustard" type of question you will have to deal with A delicious dilemma!

Also...McDonald's also serves green chile cheesburgers. If that's a hint : )
