A lot of people love that, so if this is making you salivate, absolutely order it! Just don’t expect a taco. And if you like tacos, let me suggest a few other things.
Reader, this is the green chile queso. Queso, drooling reader. Now that you’re acquainted, never miss an opportunity to say hi to this old friend when you go. It has a dollop of guac to cool it off and is deliciously cheesy with great chile flavor. Goes great with my two other favorite tacos, the democrat and the mr. pink. They undoubtedly have something for every taco lover, from the purists to the over-the-top extremists.
They also carry Maine Root’s fair trade certified organically sweetened sodas which are a great tasting departure from your day to day options. Try them all until you find your new love. Mine are the root beer and vanilla creme. I don’t want to gloss over the awesomeness of this, and many other company’s like it. Fair Trade certification makes sure that their sugar cane farmers receive a fair price for their harvest, creates direct trade links between farmers and buyers, and provides access to affordable credit. They also must adhere to strict standards regarding pesticides, water protection, virgin forest and other ecosystems, and the management of erosion and waste. Sometimes, especially here in the states, we’re so disconnected from our food and where it comes from. I appreciate the movement that has brought us back and the many entrepreneurs that work hard to bring us closer to those who labor for the food we love. On top of that, they’re top notch sodas!
Taco on readers! And if you’re sad you don’t live in Texas, check out their locations and maybe you’ll get lucky!
