WORLD’S LARGEST CHEESEBURGER
Mesilla – Peppers Café operates inside the Double Eagle and offers a casual atmosphere with a menu dedicated to New Mexican cuisine. The Green Chile Cheeseburger, a traditional New Mexican specialty,is built on a special yeast roll bun, baked locally, toasted with garlic-infused mayonnaise and topped by a seasoned and grilled one and a quarter pound patty of beef. Roasted Mesilla Valley green chilies and a half pound of white New Mexico Queso Fresco cheese drape the huge 12 inch wide burger. A sprinkling of the restaurant’s Pico De Gallo (chopped onion, tomato and jalapenos) over the cheese adds color and sharpness to the flavors. Crisp Iceberg lettuce, slices of local tomato and New Mex Sweet onion plus a dill pickle slice join the large platter for service.
