CHILE VERDE BURRITO Sat, 02/18/06 3:12 PM (permalink)
I am a chile verde lover & just discovered maybe the best chile verde burro ever. Crazy Coyote Taco stand 13033 Fields Rd. in Cabazon near Banning, CA. Right off "the" 10 (interstate), Cabazon exit. So if you're headed to Palm Springs check it out! YUM!

    As long as you're going to advertize, can you tell us what's good about this alleged burrito?

      If she's advertising, she's likely also lying about her home because she says she's from MA--a long way from (the) 10 and Palm Springs. My assumption was not that she's advertising but a newcomer who is or recently was travelling, perhaps vacationing in Palm Springs, and encountered this place. Maybe if we are friendly, she'll tell us more about it.

        WOW! I'm new to this forum & was shocked by the responses... Yes, I am from MA & am visiting a friend near Riverside. We took a day trip to the Malki Museum on the Morongo Reservation & stumbled across this taco joint. I thought it would be nice to share this gem with other chile verde lovers, now I'm not so sure I'm likely to do it again... SB

            Tenaya,
            Please don't be frightened off. Unfortunately, Roadfood has a lot of surly, nasty, judgemental members. But if you can overlook that, I think you'll find it's a great site and can be a lot of fun.

                  I hope that plural (responses) was a mistake. My effort was intended to counter the snarl you got first, not exacerbate it. Anyway, so the burrito was great. How 'bout explaining more about the place and the food. What else do they serve? What made it so good? You get the idea . . . .

                      Ah, but I haven't attacked you yet. Surely you'll want to stick around for that.

                            I have chosen Conway to live. I know its a little out of the way, but I got a good dealon a place, and I thought better to live out of the way and avoid those horrendous traffic jams also.
                            I would have rather been closer to the beach, but the $$ kept going up..
                            I will be on the job hunt a few days after I get there, since I noticed that places are starting hiring for season, and would like to land one bartending. I just have to see once I am there where to go, travel time, popular spots for working, etc., etc.,...

                            I will be there next Sunday, the 27th.
                            <---Miss wearing those 24/7
                            LOL... mostly I miss the tan lines

                                Even with the new lanes and added ramps,RT 501 has to be be the most congested highway outside Chicago city limits.I do like Conway though.Very convienient to shopping and the airport.My house is pretty south of you but if you're bartending and are wearing a tag that says Hello "My Name Is Tara" i might run into you some night.

                                      Oh, I've heard of people who like to be in the sun even when the temperatures aren't hovering around 15 below. I can't say as I understand that sort of stuff, myself, being a below-zero with lots and lots of snow kind of guy.

                                          Welcome Tenaya! I'm kinda new here also but have had lots of fun and learned allot.

                                          Ok, about those chili verde burritos, whats in em besides chili verde sauce? No place to get em in Texas that I know of but I will make my own. There are some places to get a good green chili stew here and I love that!
                                          Joe

                                            Dear Tenaya

                                            I am sure the chili verde was great and I can't get enough green sauce.

                                            But that dish is made with pork and I will bet if you order an "al pastor" burrito next time you will like it even more because the tasty meat will come through better. Try it.

                                                Busted, both locations. Do you not agree the flavor comes through better without green chili sauce (as good as it is)?

                                                  My personal fave is "carnitas". Actually, not so sure how that differs from "al pastor". I think the latter is marinated and carnitas is just roasted. Both, obviously, are pork.

                                                    you learned that from the guys hopping the fence. more power to you.

                                                      I'm pretty sure I have tried it. I just didn't notice that much difference and carnitas is more common so that's usually what I order. I do agree with you, though, that I don't like the meats in sauces as much as the unsauced meats. Remember the old Taqueria La Cumbre (which I understand is now a shadow of its former self)? Their carne asada burritos were archetypal. They tasted MOSTLY of steak.

                                                      No fence here (yet) by the way--just a long walk through the desert (temp 110 degrees in the summer) and watch out for the snakes, scorpions etc. A bit of related GOOD news (well, I'm excited about it anyway): along with the human carnitas experts have recently come jaguars, seen and even phtographed north of the border for the first time in a long time (and they like meat too):

                                                        How do you pop pics so easily into the message. That is impressive. was that you're pic of the bicycle on the Land's End trail ?
                                                        I need to learn how to do that, not only for here but..well many emails.
                                                        And La Cumbre is still good, I think people get spoiled and that is why I think Taco Bell is finished. (they refuse to accept people know what a tacqueria is supposed to taste like.) Enjoy the sun... In fact our latest takeout hot spot is....Sol Food....A Puerto Rican place, and I have been there (the country and the place down the street)
