Anthony Bourdain admits mistake on NM 'Frito pie'

(Continued)

Still, Collins said he and the staff don't have any ill feelings toward Bourdain. He said during the taping of the visit, Bourdain was nice and a pleasure to be around.

Reynolds also said Bourdain enjoyed the pie, something that wasn't clear from the show.

"Contrary to the impression left by some reports of the show, I, in fact, very much enjoyed my Frito pie in spite of its disturbing weight in the hand. It may have felt like (expletive) but was shockingly tasty," Bourdain said in a statement.

The food critic wasn't all negative toward New Mexico on the episode. Bourdain is seen driving on Route 66 through New Mexico and speaks of the famous highway's different cultures and cornucopia of food. He also is shown enjoying some "level 3" green chile and having to "wait it out" while the spicy effects wear off.
