Red or Green? (Tomasita’s in Santa Fe, click comment)

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 10-07-2009


We hear this every time we eat Mexican food out. Red Chile or green chile? I am a green kind of guy myself, but every once in a while, I do make a mistake. I ordered a carne ardovada enchilada with green the other day. The boss looked over at me and she said, “Why?” and I said, “Why, what?” She said, “why are you ordering green on something prepared in a red sauce already?” And I said, “Oh! OK, make that red.” Red is good, don’t get me wrong, but I think the green has a fresher taste. The boss on the other hand says red is just a better taste, period. So, I reckon it just depends on what kind of taster you have, you know, down there in the old throat somewhere. I have learned better than to say, “Oh, it doesn’t get to hot for me!!!” I do like it spicy, and I do like it hot, but beware, folks, every once in a while they bring in those chilies from hell….if you are a newcomer, order tea and water, so you keep something wet and cool in front of you all the time…..just a precautionary measure, understand… Another thing, the boss like chile rellenos and huevos rancheros and orders them all the time. If  I can catch the waitress fast enough and say, “I’ll have what she’s having” or if I am to late for that, its, enchiladas or combination plate for me…..I can’t say rellenos or huevos rancheros….never could…and I don’t think it’s about rolling the r’s…..folks just ain’t suppose to talk like that…..

We went to Santa Fe today, did some stuff and had lunch. The first thing we noticed that Randy Travis had records and pictures all over the place. I don’t know, maybe he owns it or is a friend of something. The name is “Tomasita’s”, I think that is spelled correctly. The second thing I noticed on the red or green thing, is that you can sample the chiles for hot. I ordered green which the waiter said was the hotter of the two, so the sampling thing is for fur-en-iers. Wasn’t hot, just right. And that is a great place to eat, really, and only a 25 minute wait just a little after noon. Try it out,

Soon I will post “The Best Mexican Food in Albuquerque” and I think it will surprise almost all of you. I hate to name it because it is already hard enough to get in around noon and it’s kind’a like, forget weekends, but they deserve to be named
as the best place. Don’t forget, COMING SOON……
