Fantastic Flavors this Fall Season in Arizona at Modern Tortilla
Can you feel the kiss of coolness in the air? Do you smell the smoke from chimneys as night draws closer? Is the scent of pumpkin causing your taste buds to stand up and take notice? Chances are, if you answered yes to only one of the questions above (the last one), you live in the desert, where fall is just another page on the calendar of scorch! Yes, the desert stays hot long into the winter months, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a taste of fall season in Arizona from these fantastic flavors found at Modern Tortilla! And who knows? Maybe your taste buds can trick your sense of touch into feeling that the mercury has indeed fallen!
Where It All Begins
As we begin this foray into fall, the appetizers on the menu of Modern Tortilla are our first glimpse of everything fresh and fall-like, and the elote, a traditional Mexican corn dish, is where the season begins! Although we tend to think of corn on the cob as a summer dish, this roasted sweet corn prepared with cilantro lime mayo, cotija cheese, and smoked paprika brings fall to life!
It’s Taco Tuesday Every Day During Fall Season in Arizona
Obviously the first Thanksgiving did not have tacos on the menu, but we like to think that if they knew how wonderful the ones found on our Modern Tortilla food trucks are, they would have incorporated the humble taco into every fall meal! El Ranchero, with marinated beef skirt steak, white onions, cilantro, chipotle salsa, and fresh lime juice, is our idea of the perfect fall meal; prepared with locally sourced items and lots of love, the taste can almost convince us that it is 65 degrees outside, not 100!
Quesadillas for Everyone
Offering the simplicity of a PB&J with the complexity of Mexican ingredients, unlike our eastern counterparts, many of us Arizonans were raised on quesadillas; the PB&J, while filling and sweet, never did satisfy our craving for flavor. The quesadillas we serve on our menu take the simple concept a step further. Adding meats, fall veggies, and our own unique spices, these savory treats are good every day of the year, but in the fall, we fall in love with their flavors all over again!
Falling for Modern Tortilla
