Who is Taco Buddha?

Many have inquired as to the origins of our name and logo. By encompassing the intrinsic values of the Buddha, we believe in a sense of purpose and strength through humility, and ascribe to the values of harmony and peace in everything we do. May our efforts be reflected in the quality products we offer to our customers each and everyday, and the thankfulness for the opportunity to do so. We are predominantly a “scratch kitchen,” utilizing simple ingredients from a variety of sources. We don’t judge others on their dietary preferences, and seek out the freshest sources of meats, grains, spices and vegetables for our unique recipes. We believe tacos are humble vessels from which international flavors can be combined to satisfy our meat eating, as well as our vegetarian and vegan customers. We encompass a small footprint in our café, while at the same time strive to provide a significantly positiveimpact in the community.

 

We like do things a little different around here!

A big part of our story involves the exclusive use of authentic New Mexican Hatch green chiles in our recipes. We source these from an area stretching North and South along the Rio Grande, encompassing the Southeast region of Hatch, New Mexico. The soil and growing conditions in the Hatch Valley create an atmosphere that infuses the heady flavor of the chiles grown there. Specifically, The New Mexico Hatch green chile pepper flavor has been described as lightly pungent, similar to an onion, or garlic with a subtly sweet, spicy, crisp, and smoky taste. The ripened red chile retains the same flavor, but adds an earthiness and bite while aging mellows the front-heat and delivers more of a back-heat. Those who prefer the delightful mix of green and red chiles are known to enjoy their dishes “Christmas Style.”

The chile pepper is New Mexico's state vegetable, and the official state question is: “Are you Red or Green?”
