Don Juan’s Cocina is quite a unique restaurant in Socorro. Their food is astonishingly great and authentic New Mexican. What may seem to be a small restaurant with a small menu, they offer a variety of New Mexican foods. On this visit, my friend ordered the Flautas plate, and I ordered Green Chile Cheese Enchiladas.
On the Flautas plate, you get flautas–which are corn tortillas filled with beef (think taquitos, but not) with guacomole along with beans, rice, lettuce, and tomatoes. My friend opted out of the rice and asked for beans only.
For me, I ordered a classic–green chile cheese enchiladas. On this plate, you get rolled corn tortillas filled with cheese, topped with cheese and a choice of red or green chile. It also comes with beans and rice. Optional is the egg on top. The chile is nice a hot.
The intended audience for these plates is for those who want to indulge in green chile or want a taste of guacamole.
