Searching for Chile Relleno Burritos

spkldhnd May 27, 2009 08:25 AM

I am craving a Chile Relleno Burrito in the Boston area!

After falling in love with these in LA, I've found none of our usual local joints make one.

Can any local hounds help me out?

    I've never seen or heard of a chile relleno burrito. Is it just a chili relleno inside a tortilla? It sounds fab, but I think you're gonna have to go back to LA to get one, unfortunately!

      I have not seen it on a local menu either, but the chiles rellenos at Taqueria La Mexicana in Union Square are delicious. You might inquire of them if they could stuff it in a burrito.

        I have never heard of it either.

        It sounds kind of like a Mexican turducken.

          No help now, but there used to be a place on Route 9, Natick line that had 'em. Long gone...I think there was a Cambridge branch as well...Tj"s?

              La Verdad has chile relleno tacos, but not burritos, I believe.

              (But THANK YOU for this response!- I knew I had seen chile rellenos as a taco filling somewhere recently and could NOT remember where - your post jogged my memory.)

              Picante in Central Square Cambridge has them on occasion.
