Albuquerque, New Mexico

In Albuquerque, red and green chile sauce reign supreme, topping everything from enchiladas and burritos to huevos rancheros and even burgers. A sauce's bite is not determined by the color of the chile, as often believed, but by the particular variety of the fruit, and when it was grown. When ordering food in Albuquerque, it’s wise to ask the waiter which color sauce is hotter that day to suit your tastes. Or, just order your dish "Christmas-style," so it comes with both. Said to have originated in Albuquerque, sopaipillas are often served alongside spicy meals. When these fried doughy treats are dipped in honey, they help soothe a burning tongue.
