I love burgers, all kinds of burgers, even burgers that take on a different identity. Occasionally I come across a menu that serves a burger with a fried egg on top. I’m not sure an ordinary burger with a fried egg is that appealing to me but I did start to consider the possibilities. The burger that kept coming to mind was an enchilada burger with a fried egg dripping yolk over the sides with melting cheese and a ground beef patty drenched in chile. I’m partial to red chile enchiladas, but Joe prefers green so I made one of each. There’s no way to pick these up and take a bite without something good dripping from you chin so it’s best to eat with a knife and fork. I promise, these burgers taste delicious and are by no means ordinary!

This year Joe and I have gone to several fall festivals around town. We’ve been to Irish Fest, the Plaza Art Fair and Old Settlers Day. It’s a great way to spend a day at any of these events. We’ve had some great festival food which got me craving a NM favorite Frito Pie. Frito Pie is a staple at most festivals in NM. We eat it straight from the bag and the chili has to be New Mexican. It’s traditionally served with grated cheese and onions upon request. When I make it for myself, I like to add some shredded lettuce and diced tomato to the mix. It’s Muy Bueno! I’d like to give a shout out to the ladies at the Desert Rose Center in downtown Tucumcari, thank you for the beautiful Route 66 swatch of material. It goes perfect with my NM Frito Pie!
