After our drive up to Hatch last week, we stopped at Sparky's for lunch. Of course, we had their famous green chile cheeseburger, which was juicy and good. But the star of the meal was the basket of green chile cheese fries. Green chile cheese fries can be limp and soggy and pretty nasty; these, however, were hot (in every way) and crisp and really flavorful.
I know, I know, this stuff will kill you, but we've been eating so many beautiful fresh organic vegetables (stir-fried, steamed, raw, in salads, etc. etc.) that we figured we could handle just one little meal that was really bad for us. Besides, chiles are vegetables, for sure!
The perfect accompaniment to the meal, according to Beez, was his green chile mango shake. Cool and hot, too, with just a little bite--and it contained vegetables and fruit--what could be better?
