Start the New Year with this taco

January Taco of the Month

January’s taco is the Puerco en Crema Verde. The star of this show is the Crema Verde that ties everything together. To make the sauce, we blend jalapeños, garlic, cilantro, lime and some other secret ingredients. The carnitas are simmered down with the sauce for incredible flavor.  The guisado is then wrapped in our signature crispy cheese and served on a tortilla with micro greens, avocado, and a drizzle of the verde sauce for extra flavor

Don’t forget to try a winter cocktail!
