Green chile cheese hot dog good for calming nerves

-A A +A
By Bennett Horne

Don’t be fooled by the name, because The Burger Shack at Taos Ale House in Taos makes more than just burgers.
That’s what I found out Saturday after sampling maybe the best hot dog I’ve eaten since moving to New Mexico.
It was a green chile cheese hot dog, to be exact, and it was the perfect late lunch to soften some of the white-knuckle moments from earlier in the day.
A butterscotch frozen custard, called a “concrete,” from Freddy’s in Española would later provide the ideal culinary capper to the excursion.
It all started with a drive to Santa Fe to pick up a friend for the day’s adventure. Along the way, I went through my usual exercise of counting casinos between Los Alamos and Santa Fe. (It seems to make the trip go by faster, not that it’s that long a trip anyway.) Then it was off to Taos to check another location off my list of places I’d never been before.
