MAIN DISHES 

Green Chile Mac-n-Cheese - We don't know exactly why this dish just sings.  Maybe it's the hand cut pasta (Joe-Vito-Bella, Pueblo) or the rich all-natural cheese (Rocking W, Olathe) or perhaps its those super-flavorful green chiles (Milberger Farm, Pueblo).  But, whatever it is, this dish is incredible.

Meatless $6.99/lb  or try the version with Gosar Ranch chorizo (Monte Vista)  $7.99/lb

Thai Pork Basil Quinoa – The deliciousness of this dish is almost indescribable. But, it's got to stem from the beautifulness of the pork itself: Pasture-raised Berkshire (Wellington, CO) has a delicate, not blunt, flavor. We toss that ground pork with fresh basil (Crestone) and serve it over organic quinoa from the San Luis Valley (Mosca, CO). Yum!

Cheese, Chicken, Pork and Tamales - Almost everything in our deli is handmade by our staff right here. But, Wayne and Lisa at the Tamale Connection (Antonito) are sooooo good at what they do, there's no reason for us to re-invent the wheel. Their tamales are mostly meat with just a bit of masa layered around either pork (w/green chile) or chicken (with red chile). No filler here! Or, in the case of the veggie tamales, the masa and cheese are intermingled perfectly. With varying spice levels, there's something that's right for just about everybody.

Asian noodles –This dish is super simple, yet so good you won't want to stop eating. Hand-cut pasta by Joe-Vito-Bella (Pueblo, CO) and a few veggies (like colorful sweet peppers from Pueblo & onions from Buffalo Packing, in Olathe) tossed with Asian flavors: ginger and tamari, then either paired with mandarin orange – ginger chicken sausage (Gosar Ranch, Monte Vista, CO) - or not for the veggie version. Sooooo satisfying.
