New Mexico Bucket List – O ~ Blogging Through the Alphabet

Blogging Through The Alphabet O vertical image

Green chile cheese burgers are an important part of New Mexican fare. You can find many lists of who has the best burger. However, as with many things that are a matter of taste, the list changes based on who is creating it. If you ask around where I grew up, you will hear the name Oso Grill.

Oso Grill is, I am told, the very best place to have a fabulous green chile cheese burger. I am taking my parent’s word for this one, as it opened since I left home. (I remember this location as the place where the flowers were done for my wedding.) You can find this restaurant in Capitan, NM. Capitan is in the south-central part of New Mexico and is known as the Home of Smokey Bear.

Another place to visit is up in the northern part of New Mexico – Ojo Caliente. The name of this place is literally translated “hot eye.” Here you will find hot mineral springs and pools. The site was considered sacred by the ancient Pueblo people, though it appears that they had abandoned the area by about the 1500s. There are many myths and legends surrounding the springs and it is a place where people enjoy going to relax. There are also many hiking trails and other activities in the area.

    I don’t know that I’d be brave enough to do a green chili cheeseburger… but the hot springs sound tempting. 🙂

      Green chile can be hot or mild or anywhere in between. The flavor, though, is outstanding.

    I would love to be able to visit hot springs – seems like it would be such an interesting thing to see.
