You have the chance to taste and vote from an impressive, curated bracket of independently owned restaurants from across New Mexico.
We’ve been pumping out burgers and brews at the Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown since 2013––New Mexico’s competitive chefs have seared over 37,600 burgers for over 4,800 guests in hopes of taking home only ten trophies awarded in the past six years.
Thanks to you, and your iron stomachs, for making us one of your favorite annual foodie events!
Your votes will determine the People’s Choice Winner. A panel of foodie celebrities will judge the Reigning Chomp Winner. Sorry for the meat sweats, but we know you’ll want to try every burger before casting your votes.
