we love mexican food. i mean really love it. we eat it a lot, probably 5 times a week if not more. i’ve rounded up a few of our favorite places to get green chili in arizona.
first up is guayo’s el ray in miami, az. they make their own chips and the flour are our favorite. we always get several baskets full. their green chili cheese crisp is my favorite. its a cheese crisp topped with their green chili and tender beef. the sauce is buttery and the tortilla are homemade and delicious. ivan gets the green chili burro filled with green chili + beans + cheese.
another favorite in miami is burger house. i have never tried the burgers but the green chili there is as good as guayo’s el ray. we always get the green chili burro and grab a few extra to bring home. you go up to the counter to order and pay then sit down. its more fast food and el ray is sit down. both places are worth the drive and you might have a hard time deciding which one to go to like we always do. so sit down and enjoy your meal at el ray and the drop by burger house for a few burros to go.
another favorite is here in phoenix called rito’s. its a little hole in the wall with outdoor seating. the place is always packed but the line moves quickly. the menu is small with just a few items to chose from. we like the green chili burrito enchilada style with green sauce. the kids like the cheese quesadilla with a side of guacamole. the burrito is huge so you can share it or bring some home. the neighborhood is a little rough so if you feel nervous go during the day. i grew up in phoenix and feel completely comfortable and safe but as you can see there are bars on the window to order. somehow these sketchy places always end up being my favorite.
another good green chili burro is at xaviers casa renyoso in mesa if you are looking for something in the east valley.
