White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe -My sister shared this chili recipe with me. I usually double it and add one extra can of beans, then serve with cheddar biscuits or warmed tortillas. The jalapeno adds just enough heat to notice but not too much for my children. —Kristine Bowles, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Green Chile Cheddar Cornbread - When it comes to house breads of the South, cornbread is neck-in-neck with buttermilk biscuits for first place. Truthfully there really is no contest as each are loved equally and tend to be favored depending on the meal being served. Cornbread goes particularly well with a simple bowl of pinto beans, a cozy bowl of soup, stew or alongside an all vegetable plate.
The Alvarado Bowl is slow cooked carne adovada, home fries, New Mexico red or green chile, white cheddar, black beans, topped with two eggs your way. Served until 3pm everyday only at Standard Diner in Albuquerque, NM!
green chile cheeseburger (with sharp white cheddar) six-ounce patty, cooked medium rare, was juicy, flavorful, and well-salted; the New Mexican grass-fed beef was ground coarsely and packed loosely. The patty post-cooking: good charbroiled taste, plus a nice brown crust. A toasted brioche bun was buttery and almost crisp around the edges, and just thick enough to soak up some of the juiciness of the meat and tomato. Q Burger 301 Central NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102
