Green Chile Cheesburgers at the Green Chile Kichen?

The Librarian Mar 14, 2010 09:26 AM

Do they have them yet? Has anyone tried them? We're thinking of going for lunch today.
It's on McAllister @ Baker in the City.

      There was a CH report a couple of weeks ago that they were adding them. If we go, I'll report back. And apologies for misspelling cheeseburger!

          I don't see those on their website menu. Do they always have them or were they a special for that day?

            they always have them - after 5 pm daily - not on the menu -

            watch for the late March opening of their dessert place in the former location at the corner of Baker and Fulton streets... for green chile ice cream and pie

        Found out when we got there that the cheeseburgers are only available at night. Oh well...I had the chile rellenos plate instead. Not the best I've had, but fine. I had both the red and green chile sauces, and I really liked the red. It had a nice earthy depth of flavor. The green tasted like heated up canned chopped green chiles. My husband loved his blue corn flat enchiladas with red sauce, and I thought they were very tasty too. Pleasant place, nice people. I probably wouldn't make a special trip in from Marin again, but, if I were in the neighborhood, I'd go and try some other items.
        Obviously time to schedule a trip to Bobcat Bite in Santa Fe!

          the green chile sauce is made from frozen Hatch chiles... I asked last year and GCK will sell a 5-lb frozen block of the Hatch chiles for $40+.

              No way, really?! I've been to Hatch just to eat their chiles (dee-lish) but we were on a road trip and couldn't buy the frozen ones while we were there so had to settle for a bunch of spice rubs made from chiles. This is exciting news!

                We order in 40# to 60# of freshly picked Hatch green chile every year from New Mexico Catalogue. The chile has always arrived in tip-top condition. We roast it in the oven at 500F until the skin starts to blacken, and then freeze it skin-on. Nom-nom-nom!!!

                The house smells wonderful when we're roasting chile.

                    I forgot to mention that immediately after taking the chiles out of the oven, you need to put them in a plastic garbage bag or tightly covered pot while they cool down. This further steams the chiles and helps loosen their skin.
