Green Chile, A Taste of the Southwest:
Braum’s is excited to now offer a Green Chile Cheeseburger, Chicken Sandwich and Breakfast Burrito.
The Green Chile Cheeseburger is loaded with flavor. It has a 100% third pound beef patty, two slices of Pepper Jack Cheese rich green chile peppers, lettuce and tomato all on top of
a sesame seed bun baked fresh in our bakery.
The Green Chile Chicken is topped with the same ingredients, the only difference is that it comes with a grilled or crispy chicken breast.
Then there is the Green Chile Breakfast Burrito. It contains scrambled eggs, sausage, Pepper Jack Cheese, hash browns, tomatoes and green chile peppers.
Now, if you are not familiar with the New Mexico Hatch Valley Green Chile, then you are in for a tasty surprise!
These peppers are some of the most sought after, and some even venture to say the best tasting that you can get. So, why are they so good? The Hatch valley of New Mexico is at about 4000 feet. So during the summer the peppers are exposed to hot and cold temperatures. This fluctuation in temperature is what causes the chile peppers to have that unique “Taste of Hatch” flavor.
Plus, did you know that Chile peppers are an amazing source of vitamin A, B, and C. One fresh medium sized green chile pod has as much Vitamin C as six oranges.
They are also high in fiber, phytonutrients and even the Capsaicin, the chemical that puts the hoot in your holler, is good for you. Capsaicin is being researched for its preventive effects on cancer at several major universities.
As if you needed another reason to try the new burger, chicken sandwich or burrito out, hot chile peppers burn calories by triggering a thermodynamic burn in the body, which speeds up the metabolism–and that’s always a win…right?!
Head to your closest Braum’s to try one of these tasty creations today!
