The Rio Grande, a green chili cheeseburger, at Wild Willy’s Burgers.

Wild Willy’s traditional green chili cheeseburger is called the Rio Grande, and the green chilies used in it come from Hatch, New Mexico, the “epicenter of the universe for green chili cheeseburgers,” says Jim Williams, the chain’s founder. It’s topped with cheddar and comes with a warning that the spice level varies from batch to batch. Go ahead, take your chances.  —  Rachel Raczka
