I hate burritos, but love chile relleno burritos

I just had one of these beauties at La Cascada in Berkeley. If you know of anywhere else I can order these, please tell me.

Funny, many taquerias have burritos, have chile relleno, but refuse to make the former with the latter. I just love 'em.

  1. So is that just a burrito with chile relleno instead of meat? So it would have rice, beans, chile relleno, etc. etc. What else do you get in them. Have you really had people refuse to make that for you? Seems easy enough, but I've never thought of it.

    1. La Casona Taqueria @ 24th & Sanchez in SF has chile relleno burritos on the regular menu -- flour, spinach, wheat or sun dried tomato tortilla, beans/rice & whatever else you want on it.

      Their menu can be hit-or-miss, but the chile relleno burritos have always been decent whenever I've ordered them. It seems that they go though enough of them to make sure that they're consistently freshly-made. Not sure I'd make a trip across the Bay for them... but if you're in the area, they're good, fast and moderately cheap (given the location).

      1. El Burrito Express on Taraval by 26th Ave also has Chili Relleno Burrito. Haven't tried it so don't know if it's good.

        1. El Farolito at 24th and Mission. I've enjoyed the chile rellano burrito many times. The staff is very friendly. However, I always take out because I don't like the ambience.
