Barbecue Breakfast Burritos? That's inconceivable!
Well, not anymore. This morning I tried, and was delighted with, Rudy's Barbecue breakfast burritos. I guess you can make them to order with whatever you like, but the variety that I enjoyed was egg, potato, cheese, green chile and SMOKED BRISKET. Yep, them Texans have infiltrated our beloved breakfast burrito. But in a good way.
If you drive by a Rudy's on your way to work in the morning, stop by and try one (or two, as they aren't the biggest burritos in the world.) I think you'll be happy you did.
That sounds tasty, but I can't get over the fact that the item you describe is what Rudy's markets as a "breakfast taco" at their Texas locations. Roll it up a little more, toss in some green chile, and it's the same thing. Breakfast tacos, man, that's just weird...
Ahh...Breakfast TACOS... No WONDER they are kinda small. Well as a purist, I guess a breakfast TACO is more Texan than New Mexican. I mean Whataburger has breakfast TACOS after all (which I do NOT recommend.) And I think Taco Cabanga has bkfst tacos also. Aren't they Texan too??
Yup - the Cabana is also a Texas chain.
I know there's no appreciable difference other than the size of the tortilla, but a breakfast taco is just...wrong somehow. Especially if you fold it different and call it a burrito (no logic here, I realize).
Tacos with scrambled eggs are native to Mexico - used to have them in Vera Cruz twenty years ago. Just tortilla and eggs. But even the street vendors have a good selection of salsas and condiments, so you can make it as hot or as sweet as you want.
Not exactly Breakfast tacos, though - they are served all day.
Interesting... Were those Vera Cruz tacos made with corn or flour tortillas?
