The tortilla's thinness makes it ideal for folding, sliding under closed doors, and illustrating theories that the Earth is flat and made of corn. Voyage to the edge of deliciousness with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mexican fare at Felipe’s Tacos in Santa Fe.
Felipe’s Tacos crafts a savory breakfast and lunch menu of tortilla-encased Mexican fare prepared with fresh ingredients. Diners in search of morning fuel can fill their tanks with breakfast burritos packed with chorizo and eggs or beans and potatoes ($5.50 each). For lunch, the kitchen can fashion edible frisbees from tortillas, gooey cheese, and chicken for its quesadillas con pollo ($5.75) or mold shredded beef, eggs, pico de gallo, cheese, and beans into a flavorful football with the Machaca burrito ($7.50). Felipe’s also dishes up a variety of combination platters, such as the taco-and-quesadilla combo ($7.95), for guests looking to double up on tastiness. Quell remnant tongue flames with sips from fresh, creamy horchata made from rice and sugar mixed together in blenders plucked from nearby appliance groves.
Each day, Felipe Martinez draws upon family recipes to pack Mexican fare, including burritos and tortas, into a menu of health-conscious dishes. Bellies as empty as a black hole's social calendar refuel with hearty breakfast burritos that awaken sleepy palates with fistfuls of eggs, potatoes, chorizo, and beans. Then for later-time eats, soft tacos fold around charbroiled lean steak and marinated pork, and combination platters rent space to skinless chicken, fresh salsa, and shredded beef. Gourmet burritos provide handheld meals, such as the meatless no carne burrito with fresh beans, rice, sliced avocado, cheese, and salsa, a cornucopia of veggies that look like a bribe from a farmer, then dulcet white curtains of horchata drop over tongues to end culinary performances.
