It's up to residents to decide which restaurant boasts the best green chile cheeseburger in Santa Fe.
Voting for the second annual smackdown will open from July 15 to Aug. 15 at santafe.org/funfoodevent.
Chefs are preparing for a chance at the finals with bragging rights at stake for the best green chile cheeseburger in Santa Fe. The burgers don't have to be beef. They can be fish, turkey, yak, lamb or something else, just as long as it contains Northern New Mexican green chile, cheese and appears on the restaurant's menu through Dec. 31, 2015.
The six burger joints that receive the most votes on the website will advance to the final cook-off on Friday, Sept. 12 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Santa Fe Farmers Pavilion. A lucky seventh restaurant will be added during a radio-broadcasted bruger crawl on the week of Aug. 18.
