Olguin Defeats Flay!

Posted by: Dave DeWitt

Flay was flayed in the Green Chile Cheeseburger Throwdown held at the Buckhorn Tavern in San Antonio, New Mexico.  Flay flavored his cheeseburger not only with green chile, but wine vinegar, olive oil, "gourmet cheese" (whatever that is) and pickled onions.  The two judges, chile specialist Stephanie Walker from New Mexico State University and margarita expert Al Lucero, owner of Maria's Restaurant in Santa Fe, were not buying it.  They chose Bobby Olguin's burger over Flay's.  The story made the front page of the Albuquerque Journal on July 23 and the show will be repeated on the Food Network August 2.

I've got my DVR set to record the show when it repeats Aug 2, at 11PM ET
Bobby almost always loses because he goes overboard, and the locals know what the dish is supposed to taste like. smilies/cool.gif
