Today, on National Margarita Day no less (check our Instagram story for specials), we pay homage to the breakfast burrito. Like the snow that has fallen this month, there is no shortage of burritos in Jackson. They’re perfectly transportable and an efficient source of fuel for a day in the outdoors (or a satisfying hangover cure).
Hatch Taqueria & Tequilas: scrambled eggs are mixed up with chorizo, potatoes, hatch chile peppers and pico de gallo. This burrito is best served stationary, seeing as it’s topped with a hearty helping of queso fundido. And, all day long, in celebration of National Margarita Day, Hatch is pouring $9 margaritas. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?
D.O.G.: perhaps home to the most infamous breakfast burritos in Jackson, Down on Glen is a pint sized establishment serving up humongous burritos. They also have quite the variety. The breakfast burrito is a Jackson classic. Start with eggs, potatoes, veggies and cheese wrapped in a flour tortilla, and then opt for veggies, meat, mild or spicy. The steak and egg burrito gets classy with steak, American cheese, eggs, potatoes and onions. Bacon lovers, there’s one for you–the BRO-rrito incorporates a hearty (not heart-healthy) portion of bacon into the standard breakfast burrito.
Cowboy Coffee: serving up the cowboy burrito. Enjoy eggs; a choice of bacon, sausage or veggies; pepper jack cheese; red peppers and avocado aioli wrapped in a sun-dried tomato wrap. Don’t want to wait for them to wrap it up? Ask for one of their pre-made burritos keeping warm behind the counter.
Bar Enoteca: nestled in Teton Village’s Hotel Terra, Bar Enoteca sells their breakfast burritos from 7-10:30 a.m. Options include a chorizo burrito with eggs, onions, jalapeno peppers, cheddar cheese and potatoes, or a veggie burrito with eggs, onions, jalapeno peppers, tomatoes, cheddar cheese and potatoes. Currently, they’re offering a Tram Special–a burrito and coffee for just $8.
South Cable: tucked beside the tram, what’s a more convenient pre-ski fuel-up than at Caldera House’s South Cable Cafe? Served until 11 a.m. (so you could even get in a few runs first), their sausage breakfast burrito is stuffed to the gills with sage-maple sausage, eggs, tater tots, tomatoes and cheddar cheese. Skip the meat with the equally satiating veggie burrito: eggs, tater tots, feta, onion, zucchini, yellow squash, bell pepper, tomatoes, mushrooms and herbs.
Catering: although E.Leaven Food Company is unfortunately still under construction, their catering services are still in full swing. On their breakfast catering menu are convenient mini burritos for just $5 each. Inside are scrambled eggs, potatoes, cheddar cheese, green peppers, onions and black beans served with sour cream, salsa and tomatillo sauce.
