Five Can’t-Miss Mexican Dishes in Baja Arizona

From chimichangas to enchiladas, and everything in between.

April 26, 2017

  1. Carne Seca Chimichanga from El Charro: The one that made them famous. Make a burrito a chimichanga by deep-frying it and smothering it in spicy sauce. ($15.90) 311 N. Court Ave.

  2. Enchiladas Bandera from Mi Casa: The holy trio of enchiladas: steak, chicken, and cheese, each topped with one of Mi Casa’s signature sauces. Served with rice and beans … and a little bit of flare in the center. ($8.99) 732 W. Fourth St., Benson

  3. Birria Tacos from Taqueria Pico de Gallo: The meat is slow-cooked, the torillas are thick, and the tacos are hot. It’s the perfect grab and go snack for Tucson. Don’t miss the chile-dusted fruit spears, either. ($1.25) 2618 S. 6th Ave.

  4. No. 15 from Lerua’s Fine Mexican Foods: Nothing says simple comfort like this classic combination. Calabazitas, green corn tamale, beans, and tortilla come together in delicious harmony. ($10.95) 2005 E. Broadway Blvd.

  5. Huevos Poblanos from The Little One: Breakfast shouldn’t be small on flavor. Two over-easy eggs come served in a roasted chile poblano and smothered in a mild green poblano-based salsa. Served with beans, rice, chips, and salsa. ($10.50) 151 N. Stone Ave.
