We’ve had an amazing influx of Latinos here in Carbondale, Colorado over the past decade. In fact, our town is now about half Latino. As a result we’ve got quite a variety of excellent Mexican food (and Aspen has a workforce to keep it running). Our favorite Mexican food joint is El Pollo Rico over on Highway 133. Check it out if you’re in town — authentico! But more, we also have an excellent tortillaria that uses a nice image of Colorado mountains on their packaging; none other than the famous Maroon Bells. I couldn’t resist playing around and making a guidebook image out of the La Roca tortilla packaging. Click the image to enlarge, and get psyched to climb or ski the Bells — and take some rolled up tortillas along for trail food (insert butter and brown sugar to easily beat taste of Cliff Bars)! La Roca Tortilleria is on Hwy 133 near Pollo Rico in Carbondale.
