Re:Nov. 24, 2009 restaurant of the day...caramelo?
Caramelo translates as candy; but throughout Tucson (and maybe beyond -- I don't know), it refers to a sort of super quesadilla -- a grilled tortilla sandwich with cheese and either beef or chicken inside. It generally comes plain, and it's up to the customer to apply whatever salsas, peppers, etc. desired at the condiment bar. Do we have a a Sonoran-food expert who can help explain?
