While at Crucero, I asked owner Jesus Betancourt if he knew the location of the closest ATM and he said he'd already searched it out and it was just a couple of blocks away at a convenience store.
Determined to try something new and something that might not hinder my workout this afternoon, I ordered enchiladas potosinas. Given those criteria, potosinas were perfect, or at least perfect for me. As seen in the photo with this blog, potosinas are a different kind of enchiladas as the fillings sit on top of the tortillas. That's a delicious blend of chorizo, potatoes, queso fresco, lettuce, onions, jalapeños and tomatoes. I realize some folks would have the discipline to only eat a specific small amount of grilled chicken breast or vegetables or something. But I'm doing the best I can to carry on things like Taqueria Thursday and still get in better shape.
My friends Tye and Katie Barrett each lunched on bean and cheese burritos. They doused them with Crucero's beloved green sauce and inhaled them like they might grow legs and run away.
It was a good lunch.
