  Largest Green Chile Cheeseburger-world record set by Peppers Cafe

   MESSILA, New Mexico, USA -- Peppers Cafe, owned by C.W."Buddy" Ritter, crafted a 10-inch diameter, 1-pound burger which includes a half-pound of cheese and three green chiles all between two specially made buns, setting the world record for the largest (commercially available) green chile cheeseburger.

  The general manager of Peppers Cafe, Jerry Harrell, noted for the record that some large cheeseburgers and hamburgers hold records in other parts of the U.S., but no such honor has ever gone to the green chile cheeseburger, which is served at hundreds of restaurants in New Mexico.

   Ritter said he and cafe manager Jerry Harrell came up with the idea for the burger while discussing improving menu items. "It's so good we didn't know how to improve it, so the only thing I knew to do was make it bigger," Ritter said.

   "It's a part of life here and if a burger place doesn't serve green chile cheeseburgers they are going to be swamped for requests for it until they do," said Jerry Wright, New Mexico Restaurant Association president and Albuquerque restaurant owner.

 New Mexico's Mesilla Valley is home to two other Guinness world records involving chile. The NuMex Big Jim, developed in Las Cruces, holds the record for longest chile pepper and Las Cruces restaurant owner Roberto Estrada created the biggest red chile enchilada.
