Best Chile Colorado Burrito?
- Moose Feb 5, 2010 10:06 AM
I'm looking for a memorable, even exceptional chile colorado burrito. The kind you never forget and can't get enough of. Sadly, I haven't had one in LA yet, but am open to the possibility. And yes, I've had many a Campos and Tito's burrito. Looking for something better.
I've tried the chile colorado as an entree at Enrique's in Long Beach. Its got a nice smokiness to it that I haven't tasted anywhere else. I ordered it again a few months later at their Bellflower location, but it didn't have the same smokiness to it and not as good.

tacos por favor in santa monica. the pork is very lean, which may or may not be a good thing depending on your taste. but this is my go to item when i am in the neighborhood.
in somewhat related news, i was watching some show that was visiting el tepeyac, and they revealed that the pork in their "chile verde" (which is inexplicably red) is in fact deep-fried before added to the mix. pondering the caloric/fat content of a hollenbeck is mind numbing. but it might be something to try.
Intriguing inquiry. I cannot remember the last time that I had, or have even seen a Chile Colorado Burrito. Still, however, there is one from the past that will always come to mind as a favorite of all time – Ramona’s Chile Colorado Burrito - absolutely delicious with a deep, rich flavor. Not the automat or frozen variety, mind you, but the wait in line, made to order one at:

The founder, Romana Acosta Bañuelos, has a very laudable biography with an interesting twist on the company name:
… mmh! Maybe it’s time to go back for a refresher course …
I'd appreciate a recent report on the burrito (or I'll have to do it myself). I've been going there forever, but have to advise that their crispy tacos have taken a major hit in quality - now using terrible cardboard tasting shells!
Ms. Banuelos is in her eighties, so maybe some new management is mucking with the recipes....
