There should be a written law that any visitor to Denver must eat a green chile-drenched breakfast burrito. We’re so into them that Denver even has an official breakfast burrito day (it’s the second Saturday in October). You’ll see carts slinging these burritos on downtown corners, but drive past those and stop in at 38-year-old El Taco de Mexico. The menu is full of soul-nourishing Mexican food that includes flautas, tacos, and enchiladas, in addition to burritos. When they ask you if you’d like your burrito smothered in green chile, the answer is always yes. Just don’t be confused if it doesn’t come out green: In Colorado, it’s tinted orange, thanks to the addition of tomatoes.
