Sandwiches are conventional American-style creations (including wraps) with New Mexican accents. You can and should top the burger with green chiles. The burger itself is OK — charred medium to medium-well and simply seasoned, it isn't the juiciest specimen around, but the green chiles help.

The appetizers are uninspired: flatbreads and quesadillas. There is queso, the cheese blended with green chiles as well as pico de gallo and pinto beans. I blame that last ingredient for giving the dip a weird, funky aftertaste. Stick with the guacamole, zippy with lime. The complimentary salsa — featuring "fire-roasted" tomatoes and onions — is thin and bland.

Hidden among the soups and salads is a dish called Tucumcari chicken corn chowder. This isn't quite like any chowder I've had before; it's so thick as to barely qualify as a soup. It could use a dash of extra seasoning (salt, yes, and maybe a little spice), but the corn's sweetness and the green chile's tang work well together. Like the stacked enchiladas, it's a reminder that Adobe Reds can offer something new as well as New Mexican.
