As the mightiest mountain town in northern New Mexico, Taos is the go-to spot for those seeking a refreshing combination of summer sun and invigorating high altitude air. Long known as a place for visitors hungry for adventure, art or a tranquil getaway, Taos is now starting to make a name for itself as a hotspot for people who are just… hungry.
The hot temperatures of the summer months have nothing on the heat that comes with New Mexican chile. The official state question of New Mexico is, “red or green?” The official correct answer? That’s up to you. You’ll have no trouble finding restaurants to help you make your decision, with nearly every eatery in town offering something with spice. From green chile cheeseburgers from the The Burger Stand at Taos Ale House and green chile rellenos from La Cueva Café to the red chile enchiladas from Orlando’s or a breakfast burrito smothered in red chile from Michael’s Kitchen, you’ll have your hands (and your belly) full of delicious decision making.
