For blogger and local Santa Fean Billie Frank, choosing what to eat for breakfast is easy – a delicious breakfast burrito. The difficult, and often complicated task, is choosing where to get it. As a result, Billie took to the streets in search of the perfect Santa Fe breakfast burrito.
There’s nothing like a Northern New Mexico breakfast burrito. They are my Santa Fe breakfast of choice- a symphony of eggs, potatoes, cheese and for meat eaters, the decision between bacon and chorizo. Then comes the really big choice; red, green or Christmas. If you’re not from these parts, that’s the chile you want in or on top of your burrito. A request for Christmas gets you a mix of red and green. But it wasn’t always what I ate. When I first arrived here, I was a traditional American breakfast lover. I didn’t like it hot. It took a while before I took the plunge and I’m so glad I did. Here’s the story of my search for the perfect Santa Fe breakfast burrito.
