    ^^^This.



    And not just ANY Crest ride, but a double-descent Crest ride. He made up for it by driving for the second lap...

    See, you monkeys think northern NM has good mexican food? That's crazy talk. Go closer to Mexico. Las Cruces, specifically Mesilla has probably the best stuff. I've been in CO a few years and I have to say, the mexican food here is much better than the stuff they try to pass in TX. I grew up in southeast NM and it's good stuff there, but it's true mexican food with no meat, where you sit around your buddy's house while his mom makes tortillas and you pee in the yard because there is no indoor plumbing. That's mexican food! Once in a great while, we'd kill and roast a goat with green chiles and stuff.

    Kinda sounds like *New* Mexican food... not Mexican food.

    Thanks to you all, I am going to go get some of my favorite - tacos alhambre at Las Palmas II - 72nd and Sheridan, right now. It's basically tacos al carbon WITH BACON.
    Es muy bien.
    Don't care whether it's Mexican, New Mexican, American Mexican, or whether you all think it's "real" mexican - all I know is it is dang good. Better than the other Las Palmas on/around 38th and Federal. (this dish is better anyway).

    26ers ride way better than 29ers and your favorite band sucks.
    Gone are the days we stopped to decide,
    Where we should go,
    We just ride...

    At least in CO, you guys know a green chile is not a jalapeno. That's a great first step.

    But a jalapeno *is* a green chile. Or red... depending on ripeness.

    How is that for confusion for the general population?

    It's all about the length, sir. Size matters.

    Try Chelly's

    I sincerely apologize to those (Full Trucker et al) who had to suffer through my shrill and mind numbingly ignorant rant.

    Tacos y salas to the rescue

    Bonus broken leg update...
    Healing slightly better than expected... out of the wheel chair and now on crutches.. still targeting a March 1st come back..
    Wilbur Hope the leg gets better.

    The wife and I live in the neighborhood near Tacos y Salsas and it is excellent. If you are feeling adventurous try Chelly's, it is a little plywood shack painted neon green. The food is great but it takes a little guts to walk in the place. It is located on Federal between Louisiana and Mississippi, I would bet this food is as good as any other Mexican food. Also, Torres is a great family place, the food is spicy but they will cater to Gringos tastebuds, I take my parent there and they are from Wisconsin so they dont like any spice. It is located on Federal just south of Florida.

    The Bonnet is off Broadway but the same general location. I like the "m" plate it is a classic Denver haunt.

    haha! to funny. just got back from ABQ todayt. if you are ever in that hell hole, make every effort possible to go to The Frontier, near UNM. central and Cornell to be exact. make sure you order your favorite dish( for comparison ) with the green chili stew!

    see, NM "green chili" is chopped up green chili's! to get CO style "green chili"- wet the way we know it- you must get the stew! i just brought 112 oz. back with me! winning!


    otherwise, stay the **** out of NM. **** hole.
