The vegan version can be found here. My favorite food from living in Albuquerque are breakfast burritos, the quintessential breakfast food. Yes, they’re very simple— but that may be why they’re so satisfying. Warn and spicy, they make a wonderful, filling breakfast food.

Sorghum beer and Superbowl snacks

  Either you’re a football fan, so you’ll want beer this Sunday, or you don’t like football but were invited to a Superbowl party anyway, so you’ll need to drink to keep yourself entertained.
