›› Dish Jockey Stalking the Albuquerque Turkey The “Albuquerque turkey” sandwich is the lesser-celebrated cousin of the green chile cheeseburger. This simple combination of flavors is found in most any Burque sandwich shop—including Subway franchises—and even in pie-form at some pizzerias. As with the green chile cheeseburger, it’s possible to try too hard. But all that really matters are the bare essentials: green chile, turkey, cheese and bread, in roughly that order. JohnDhi’s BBQ, on Rio Grande and Griegos, makes one of the tastiest versions in town.
