McDonald's locations in New Mexico are celebrating Hatch Chile season with the release of a brand-new breakfast burrito. The Hatch Chile is a flavorful pepper grown in the area surrounding Hatch, New Mexico. This new McDonald's menu item celebrates the popular ingredient with a dish tailored to the New Mexico market.

The Green Chile Sunrise Burrito is a breakfast wrap that is made with Hatch Autumn Roasted Bueno Green Chile. In addition to the chiles, the burrito also contains scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, onions and a hashbrown wrapped inside a flour tortilla. Instead of the chain's more traditional breakfast sandwiches, the burrito offers a regional dish that not only celebrates Hatch Chile season, but also the influence of Mexican cuisine in the state.
