the LOTA Burger was born on July 9th, 1952 on a basic grill in a small hamburger stand in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was a prompt hit & the residents could not get enough. Blake Chanslor, the Owner & WWII Navy Pro from Borger, Texas, knew he had something special so he opened an additional Blake’s Lotaburger nearby (& then one more & then another & after that a couple of more). Now, over 60 years later (ugh, am i actually THAT old?! do not advise me!), LOTA Burgers (& it’s smaller sized twin, the ITSA Hamburger) are cooked-to-order making use of ONLY Costs Angus Beef at 80 Blake’s areas throughout New Mexico, Texas & Arizona.

But what’s a LOTA Hamburger without New Mexico Cuisine’s defining component, ECO-FRIENDLY CHILE? When Blake discovered that some consumers were generating their own Green Chiles to contribute to their (or else best) LOTA Burgers he recognized exactly what he had to do, steal their concept & serve the globe’s first Environment-friendly Chile Cheeseburger (no assembly required)! In 2006, National Geographic called the Green Chile Cheese LOTA Burger, “The World’s Best Green Chile Cheeseburger” (that makes it ‘award-winning’!).

Being the funding B, ‘Ideal’, does not come very easy however it does come with heat (i mean, like, REAL HEAT. not ‘i’m calling it warm however it’s truly medium, but seriously it’s barely light’. even more like, ‘somebody obtain me some water ASAP, make that 2 waters … ice waters. scratch that obtain me a shake!’). First-timers may wish to attempt their own on the side, due to the fact that these are 100 % New Mexico Hatch Valley Grown Green Chiles, signed up by the New Mexico Division of Agriculture & stuffed exclusively for Blake’s Lotaburger (so it’s kinda the real offer).

Blake’s has ended up being a vital stop on the New Mexico Tourist Department’s “Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail” & become so associated with New Mexico Culture that you can see wrappers, cups & areas loading the frames in AMC’s mega-hit, ‘Breaking Bad’ (i believe it do without claiming that the show doesn’t accurately portray the cozy, welcoming charm of the Land of Enchantment, yet still, wonderful show).
