The crunch from the house-made organic hash browns stands out amongst the generous helping of black bean chili that blanket’s it. Invest in your future and add the chicken chorizo.

The subtleties in this breakfast burrito are not subtleties at all. sofrito eggs, chihuahua cheese, and a palate cleanser of guajillo beans on the side. Good luck choosing between turkey chorizo, pork sausage, chicken, steak or even Canadian bacon.
