One of the saddest thing about graduating from college and moving was leaving all of our favorite restaurants. The one I miss the most is Cafe Rio. Let me just explain, all restaurants that make custom burritos and tacos are not created equal. not. at. all. And let me let you in on a secret for those that live close enough to go to a Cafe Rio… The desserts are REAL GOOD too. (p.s. Anyone have a great recipe for Tres Leches or Chocolate Flan? please link up baby!)
For those of you that have never been there, it is a restaurant the builds your customized burrito, enchilada, taco, salad or what not with a few different choices, like homemade tortillas, pork, chicken, beef, beans, rice you get the picture.
Well my friend Lew was kind enough to share with me her copycat recipe, and has given me permission to share it… Thanks Lew! You too, will want to thank her too when you try it!
serve with these tacos:
