EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Just in time for Lent in Borderland, a food truck with seasonal food arrives.
Las Enchiladas only serves enchiladas, said Miguel Diaz, who owns the food truck with his wife. âWe only specialize in handcrafted enchiladas,â he said.
Their menu includes green chicken enchiladas (La Suiza), red enchiladas (lLa Picosa), and sweet and flavorful enchiladas (La Dulce). Each plate is served with Spanish white rice and salad.
Diaz said his wife’s passion – and skill – for making enchiladas inspired him to open the food truck.
“My wife’s passion for enchiladas – we’ve been married 12 years, she’s been making enchiladas since we got married, her passion and she’s doing them very well,” he said.
Diaz also said the food truck, like many other food trucks in El Paso, was born out of necessity when the pandemic displaced jobs, including his own, and gave him plenty of time.
“The pandemic gave me the opportunity to start the food truck because I had so much time and there it is,” he said, adding that it enabled him to start a dream business.
Las Enchiladas also works to help the community and works with Manos de Gracia to collect blankets for the less fortunate in Juarez. âYou are doing a great job in Juarez,â he said.
The food truck is located at Far East El Paso, 3031 N. Zaragoza Rd. You can find opening times on their Facebook page.
