Go Burger - Green Chile Meat Burrito

The beginning of lunch trek.  We finally hit up Go Burger, a place we tried to visit early in BQ2 but discovered it's one of many burr-stablishments that are only open around lunch hours.  At 11 inches long and a hefty fill, it had the trifecta: size, taste, and price.  Go Burger reminds Daniel of the many home-grown drive-up food places that litter the Carlsbad, NM landscape.  They were voted both Best Burrito and Best Local Taco by the Las Cruces Sun News.  What the fuck a 'Local Taco' is, we don't know.  Also, they have a byzantine drive-thru process.  Ben clarifies the correct way to tell a 'your mom' joke.  We like burritos.  Correct: Your mom likes burritos.  Incorrect: I liked burritos with your mom last night.  Then Daniel gets confused.

Ingredients - Green Chile, Pork, and Potato

Ben - The time of year where you don't have your AC on and you don't have your heater on, everything just feels perfect.
Daniel - When you try on a t-shirt for the first time and it fits just right.

Andele - Chile Con Carne w/Potato, Smothered in Green Chile

Mesilla Trek begins.  We start with the one and only burrito that has been recommended to us.  Thanks, Traci; good call!  Andele has a creamy, cheesy green chile sauce, which overpowers this burrito in a delicious manner.  Daniel's go-to Mexican food place for a long time, his reaction was likely a given.  Ben's delight reaffirms and solidifies our Burrito Fraternitas.  We discuss our plans for BQ3: Triple Trek!  We shall endeavor to split our labors in this third season of Burrito Quest between Taco Bell, Mesilla, and Lunch.  Alright, that last one isn't really a place, but there are enough burr-stablishments open only around lunch time that it begs to be quested.  Daniel seeks accolades for having the idea to record these ponderings in the first place.  Ben is too weak to cut a tortilla without a knife.  Amy joins us but eats rolled tacos instead of a burrito; she gets sprayed in the face with green chile sauce for her troubles.

Ingredients - Green Chile Meat, Potatoes, and Green Chile Sauce

Ben - The Five Second rule.  If I dropped this burrito on the ground I would pick it up and eat it, despite how messy it would be.
Daniel - Drinking grape Nehi soda at my grandma's house in the summertime.  A fond memory.

Taco Bell - Beefy Crunch Burrito

Schmaco Bell!  Finally.  Our expectations were, of course, overblown.  Taco Bell is like the food of the future: chemically engineered to deliciously deliver calories to your sedentary ass.  Funnily enough they have a sign posted at the counter telling people where their beef comes from, in response to the recent law suit.  We wonder if this is aimed at the proper audience.  This burrito is chewy on the outside, and squish-ily crispy on the inside.  It reminds us of the Super Sonic Breakfast Burrito, in a bad way, and without Isaac's mouth crammed full of tater tots.  Do we need a theme for Burrito Quest 3?  Maybe.  Do we need an excuse to regale you with our opinions whilst eating burritos?  Definitely, no.  Burrito Quest 3: We Eat Burritos.

Ingredients - "Layers of seasoned ground beef, rice, warm nacho cheese sauce, reduced fat sour cream and Flamin’ Hot (R) Fritos(R) wrapped in a warm, flour tortilla."

Ben - Your car not starting the first time, but it starting immediately on the second try. A brief moment of disappointment.
Daniel - Getting grease on your hands when you fixed a part on your car.  Your hands are dirty, and hopefully you fixed what needed to be fixed.

Burrito Quest 2: The Finale

We gathered together to bid adieu to Burrito Quest 2.  Yes, we failed, we know this.  But also we have faith, despite this failure, that Salsa Bro is out there somewhere, serving free burritos to hot chicks everywhere.  Amy and Jenni join in the shenanigans, as does Isaac, who was making a brief visit.  We decide, for this second finale, to revisit Santa Fe Grill, questing for fond memories of days gone by.  Burrito Quest 3 can be seen, cresting the horizon like some hungry many-tentacled monster.  Where do we go from here?  What will it mean that we are now only two?  Will Isaac send in reports from the hinterlands?  Spoiler Alert: These questions are not answered in this recording.  BURROS! 

Ben - Afterburner
Daniel - Big Bad Aggie
Isaac - Deer Hunter
Amy - Aardvark
Jenni - Red Chile Meat

Ben - 'Your mom' jokes, they're great but then I kind of regret them.
Daniel - A pocket knife, useful but unexceptional.
Isaac - Herpes, it sucks to have them, but you had sex to get them.
Amy - A half warm cup of coffee, it's not great but it's still coffee.
Jenni - Not the herpes, good and clean.

Burrito Quest 2 Ratings:
Ben - A haircut, sometimes they can be messed up, but you always needed one.  And it's gotta happen someday or you turn into a hippy.
Daniel - Clocks, they are both conveniently useful and can slow to a crawl sometimes and suck ass.
Isaac - A loyal but untrained dog, they don't hate you and they'll always be there and you love it but you're going to have a lot of trouble with it.
