Beef and Bean Burrito – Dos Hermanos

Dos Hermano's Burrito

Food should be portable and eating it in the restaurant is great, but sometimes you need it to go. Here comes burritos and Dos Hermanos serve a variety of burritos for any part of the day, breakfast burritos and just burritos.

They make two sizes, the “Ito” and “Dos” and what that means is small and large and you can have it made to order either with red or green chile, or both. You get a lot of food for the price and it’s filling.

For this burrito, I chose ground beef, beans, rice, cheese, and green chile. If you eat it at the restaurant, it can be smothered in chile. I needed a quick bite at the time I ate my burrito and this meal did the trick.

Intended audiences are those who want food to go with them and who want to build their own burrito. I also want to mention that you can get your quick fix of chile.

Price: ~ $4 – $7 (depends on what you order).
