N.M. green chile is America’s most iconic foodJuly 24th, 2013 at 3:40 pm by KRQE News 13 Webdesk under Latest Posts
It faced some pretty tough competition, but USA Today readers chose New Mexico green chile as the most iconic American food.
The contest started earlier this month and generated tens of thousands of votes.
The magazine cites that no freezer is ever without frozen green chile and Americans seem to top everything with chile, from cheeseburgers to eggs.
Of course, the magazine calls it green chile sauce which is sacrilege in New Mexico, but we’ll accept the title anyway.
Other foods on the list following chile include Maryland crabs, Philly cheese steak and key lime pie from Key West.
