El Paso - El Chapparal

Ericruo | Jul 21, 2013 05:32 PM

I was in El Paso and had a late breakfast at El Chapparal Cafe #1 on my way back to the airport. They're at 6560 Montana Avenue, they're open daily from 7:30 am to 7:00 pm except for Thursdays-Saturdays when they stay open to 8:00 pm. Ph. 915-771-7191. Its located in a small commercial strip on Montana Avenue.

It has a Mexican American cafe where you can get a hamburger or a steak but our breakfast demonstrated they can really cook. We had breakfast special of Huevos Rancheros with chicharron, $4.59. The table salsas were red and green. The red was made with arbol chiles, good heat, great flavor. The green salsa had jalapeños and was brightly acid. The chicharrones were a different type, Chicharrones de Pella - smooth, soft, not hard-fried, seasoned with cumin and maybe New Mexico chiles, really terrific.

The food had integrity.
