THURSDAYS AT THE GRAIN TRAIN DELI
You may be like us and scurry to the Hot Bar like a kid on Christmas morning waiting for your burrito every Thursday or maybe this is the first you are hearing of these cheesy delights? Either way we thought we would take you behind the scenes and give you the inside scoop on Burrito Day—
Joe starts prepping on Wednesday to make sure there are burritos hot and ready by 11 AM every Thursday. You might have come by in the morning for your breakfast burrito or coffee and have seen him getting them all lined up? He makes up to 160 burritos each week. There are classic bean and cheese, beef, and chicken options. Just like with all of the food we make, there is no artificial anything in these burritos!
One of the things that stands out about our burritos is that they are made with hatch chile peppers. These peppers are specific to Hatch Valley in southern New Mexico. Don’t worry, they only add a really subtle amount of heat and some really nice flavor!
Beyond the Hatch peppers are ingredients you can feel good about. We use Lundberg Family Farms eco-farmed short grain brown rice and organic pinto beans. Our chicken is antibiotic-free, artificial hormone-free, pastured, grass-fed and synthetic chemical-free, and sourced from Nature’s Acres Chicken in Manton. The burger we use is from Whispering Pines Ranch in Mio, MI and is grass-fed and pasture-raised with no antibiotics or hormones. Put all of that together and you have one tasty burrito that will have you asking if it is Thursday yet!
Well, we hope that has your mouth watering and you marking Thursdays in your work calendars as Burrito Day. See you at the Hot Bar!
