Battle of the Scottsdale Green Chile Bacon Cheeseburgers: Greasewood Flat vs. Carlsbad Tavern

One of the finest examples of a regional guilty pleasure in the desert Southwest is the green chile cheeseburger. While it's more of a New Mexico specialty (where the green chile shares State Vegetable honors with the humble pinto bean), fine examples have found their way west to the desert that we call home. It so happens that two excellent ones are on opposite ends of Scottsdale, and both (of course) have bacon as an available option. Whose reigns supreme? Let's get on the trail!
