Anything with tater tots gets the thumbs up as far as we’re concerned. The deep-fried nuggets of potatoes have been stuffed into our hearts ever since the film Napoleon Dynamite captivated the nation. So what could be the ultimate item for a tater tot lover?
Fellow Foodbeast Elie was looking for some lunch one day when he discovered a new neighborhood food stall: Civic.
One of the first items on the menu was a chorizo breakfast burrito that was stuffed with tater tots.
Now, breakfast aficionados will know that a typical breakfast burrito utilizes homestyle potatoes or hash browns as the starchy base for the tortilla wrap. Civic, however, threw in deep-fried tots instead.
Inside the breakfast burrito is a savory medley of chorizo sausage, scrambled eggs, tons of cheese, honey chipotle crema, and the aforementioned tater tots. Elie recommend pairing the hefty burrito with Civic’s jalapeño secret sauce.
If we recall that day correctly, he took a two hour nap after lunch. A sign of a good burrito.
You can find the Chorizo Tater Tot burrito at Civic, located at the 4th Street Market in Downtown Santa Ana, CA. Now excuse us, we’re going to grab a late breakfast.
