Chicharron-Off: Las Trancas v Mi Pueblito

A challenge was extended, a challenge we accepted most lustily.  Someone commented on Facebook that Mi Pueblito had a good chicharron burrito.  Not wanting Las Trancas' reputation to be sullied, we felt it our duty to put paid to this assertion.  So, with Sage in town (and Sarah in tow, but declining the chicharron-off) we chowed down on chicharron burritos from each; a veritable gastronomic battle royale.  The surprising result: Mi Pueblito edges past by a nose.  Turns out Mi Pueblito puts green chile in theirs, and we got red chile on the Las Trancas because that's what we knew.  This makes the comparison a bit uneven, but it also ended up being the only deciding point between them.  Good texture and flavor from both, so really everyone wins.  Ben explains his previous apparent insensitivity to the certain races.  Daniel momentarily loses his mind and asks Ben who is cooler, Batman or Robin?  He quickly retracts his idiotic question.  Sage suggests questing whilst surrounded by nerds.  Amy had specific instructions for her burrito, which Daniel completely disregards.

Ingredients: Las Trancas - Chicharrones, Red Chile, Refried Beans, and Cheese; Mi Pueblito - Chicharrones, Green Chile, Refried Beans, and Cheese

Ben - Las Trancas: The red chile is Robin, but after he stops being a bitch, like after he turns into Nightwing. Mi Pueblito: The green chile is the Batman.
Daniel - Las Trancas: A stinky blue cheese, good sometimes but very rich; Mi Pueblito: A delicious Irish cheddar, good anytime and all the time.
Sage - Las Trancas: 3rd Edition D&D, it's kind of all over the place but sometimes those extra bits sometimes are appealing.  Mi Pueblito: 4th Edition D&D, it's a little better made but occasionally doesn't appeal as much.
Amy - I hope I don't spend the rest of the afternoon in the bathroom.
