It's always disappointing when an old favorite lets you down. It is even more disappointing when you recommend the place and take friends there. We recently went to Las Delicias in Denver for their chile rellenos. They are soft and not crisp which is our favorite but still very good over the years. We have been coming to Denver every two years for Bob's beryllium testing since 2001. We usually eat at Las Delicias once a visit and it was always good.
We knew we might be in trouble when they bring out the dish and there is a red sauce over the chile relleno. This red sauce was their green chile sauce which was our first hint we were in for trouble. The soft chile relleno had so much breading that it was hard to find the chile or the cheese. They do now offer a crispy version but also way too much breading on that too. On top of too much breading it also tasted a little old.
So without further adieu the best chile relleno entry for Las Delicias has been removed, leaving Las Salitas in Albuquerque New Mexico as the sole remaining entry. Our trip back to Arizona for the winter will pass through Albuquerque so in a few short weeks we will be making sure La Salita deserves to remain on the list for both chile rellenos and for favorite new mexican restaurant.
One thing that never disappoints is how cute are cats are. Here are two of them sharing a bed.
Till next time,
