Carnitas are back at Del Taco for a limited time. You can get your shredded pork in nachos, taco, or burrito form, including the new Primo Carnitas Burrito. We tried the four carnitas variants, plus a new breakfast burrito.

When I asked a Santa Fe-native friend what to eat in New Mexico, his response was immediate and unequivocal: "Tia Sophia's breakfast burrito with egg inside, smothered in green or green and red.

If you'd asked me last week where to get a good breakfast burrito in New York, I probably wouldn't have had an answer. And I certainly wouldn't have thought my answer would be Murray's Cheese in the West Village.

The best breakfast tacos and migas in Austin? It was a difficult, tortilla-filled quest. So many taquerias and roadside stands claim to have the best. But we found one of our favorites at La Cocina de Consuelo, where you'll actually see a hair-netted Consuelo, or Connie (Rodriguez), in the kitchen making everything to order. If you get there before 11 a.m., she's wrapping breakfast burritos with her pressed-that-morning tortillas: steamy, chewy, and freckled with tiny brown bubbles.
