Burnt Well is a real working cattle and sheep ranch located in New Mexico who accepts a few guests to ensure the stay is truly authentic and customized. They are open year round and can accommodate everything from avid riders to beginners. New Mexico is famous for their Green Chile crops and one of the mealtime staples at Burnt Well Guest Ranch is Chile Relleno Casserole.  They love their chile, so much so that their State Question is “Red or Green?”We thank them for sharing their special recipe.
