Explore New Mexico’s Spicy Side with Our Most Popular Food!
The New Mexico Chile Bike Tour is Albuquerque’s first signature bicycle experience that takes guests onto the streets of Albuquerque to explore the flavorful red and green chiles for which New Mexico is famous. Each installment features six innovative culinary partners and a wide selection of New Mexican chiles in delicious combinations of classic, sweet, savory, and unique.
The bold flavors of contemporary New Mexican cuisine arise from the State’s local terrain and arid climate (which lend themselves to the distinctive flavor of green and red chile), and blend traditional Native American, Spanish, and American culinary traditions. No visit to the Land of Enchantment is complete without sampling the rich variety of cuisines embraced by our creative chefs.
