Breakfast Burrito Byway (NM Mornings Can Be Chile)
New Mexico True ^ | June 16, 2014 | NM Tourism Department

Posted on 06/16/2014 3:27:48 PM PDT by CedarDave

In New Mexico almost no food, no meal is without the influence of the famous chile pepper. So it should be no surprise that New Mexico claims the invention of the Breakfast Burrito. It is the wrapped wonder that brings spice to the morning. It is now a staple on menus across the Southwest, and showing up frequently on menus nationwide. Even fast food chains now offer versions. Now, to celebrate this success and its New Mexico heritage, we have created the New Mexico True Breakfast Burrito Byway.

ABQ Journal article:

New ‘Breakfast Burrito Byway’ now has its founding 50 restaurants

Excerpt:

The people of New Mexico have spoken.

The state tourism department on Monday unveiled the “Breakfast Burrito Byway,” a new map that plots the top 50 New Mexico restaurants for breakfast burritos as decided by the popular vote.

Burrito enthusiasts cast a total of 46,766 votes during the month-long campaign, whittling 400 nominees to the top 50.

“Of course, Philadelphia has their cheesesteak and Chicago has their deep pan pizza and Maine has their lobsters, but in New Mexico, we have them all beat,” Gov. Susana Martinez said during a news conference at Tim’s Place in Albuquerque. “We have the breakfast burritos.”

The map features sites as far north as Chama (Fina’s Diner) and as far south as Mesilla (Andele Restaurant).

Stayed at Old Santa Fe Inn a couple years ago. Breakfast included. Surprisingly, very good and loved the breakfast burrito.

My introduction to the breakfast burrito came when I was in the Navy stationed at San Diego. Every morning the roach coach would come to the pier and if it wasn't to far from payday I would go down down to the pier to get a big breakfast burrito. A big steaming burrito filled with chorizo, eggs, cheese and hash-browns freshly made by the Mexican cook in the roach coach, for just $2. Oh the memories!

If the Uranium Cafe is still in Grants, NM; that is my choice for a green chilli breakfast burrito.

I had my first one THERE in 1974 & was last back that way (for breakfast) about 10 years ago.

My favorite was from Rena’s Chuckwagon Cafe in Tijeras. The cafe was an old adobe house, and one small dining room was all John Wayne posters. The burrito was so big I called it “The Lindberg Baby”. The cafe burned down years ago.

I was always partial to breakfast burritos from the Grinder Mill in Silver City. My favorite was bacon, eggs, potatoes, and cheese, with plenty of hot green chile. Sometimes I’d get another to take for lunch.

I would hit the Roadrunner at the Valero gas station in Eunice, NM late in the afternoon. After 4pm all the grab-n-go homemade burritos were on salefor $1.79 each. 2 burritos and I was stuffed. My favorite were the Barbacoas, which I would unroll and smother with their fresh homemade pico de gallo. Miss that.

Do you still have Twisters? There was one right next door to the Sun Healthcare Group MIS building where I worked for a few years. They made some monster burritos.

For the money, I always loved Blake’s green Chile breakfast burrito. Haven’t had one in over a year since my last visit.

Yes. They're still here. I visit the one you mention on a daily basis for iced tea, and occasionally will buy the food (can't afford the food on a daily basis - price wise and calorie wise). They have some of the tastiest salsa in town, gives Sadie's and El Pinto a run for the money.

Hmm there was a place in Hobbs on the list, I have heard of it before but haven't tried it yet. I guess I need to do that. I usually get my breakfast burrito at the Valero on West County Road. Nothing special but okay, and they have good pico.

I have gone in there while they are cooking up a batch of chicken fajita mix in the early evening and it smells SO GOOD. I have asked to buy just a bowl of the stuff but they always refuse, saying it is for tomorrow's burritos. But tomorrow, you know it just isn't going to be the same. (sigh)

I was weaned on Breakfast Burritos..... (NOT breakfast tacos!). My personal fave is a chile relleno burrito.

Have you ever heard of The Little Diner in Canutillo?

I was soooo happy to find a huge jar of Hatch NM roasted green chiles (505 brand), at my local Costco! Yum.....green chile is good on just about evertything ;-)

I do corned beef hash in my breakfast burritos instead of hash browns or potatoes. The other ingredients are standard.
