Is a Quesadilla a Sandwich?

Posted on
One of the best parts of having a job is engaging in team-wide debates about real life rhetoric. Basically, we love to ask our coworker silly but valuable questions about random stuff. This week’s topic of conversation asks “is a quesadilla a sandwich?” Everybody seems to have an opinion with deep, supportive reasoning. How do we achieve an answer here? Who has the right to make the call? Before we get into that, let’s look into the argument itself. Local blogger Anthony Mastracci surveyed over 100 random Americans on Instagram to gauge their points of view.

Yes, It’s a Sandwich

The argument goes like this – the quesadilla is to Mexican cuisine what the grilled cheese is to American cuisine. It’s melted cheese between one or two pieces of bread/wraps, which they say constitutes a sandwich and that therefore a wrap is also a sandwich. Other similar flatbreads include pita, lavash, or the Italian piadina, which are all commonly used as a bread element for a sandwich.

No, It’s Not a Sandwich

The “no” side debates that a sandwich is two slices of bread with “stuff” in between. They say tortillas are nowhere close to being bread because there’s no leavening agent, it’s not fluffy, and it doesn’t crust up the same way a whole wheat or rye bread would if it were to be toasted. Some of the “no’s” even go as far to say that a quesadilla belongs in its own category entirely, separate from sandwiches and even wraps.

Who Gets the Say

To figure out who determines random, yet important, questions like this, we have to turn to the age-old debate – is a hotdog a sandwich? Sure, Merriam-Webster’s dictionary may be on board with the hot dog being a sandwich, but sandwich constitution is actually determined by state law, commonly for taxation purposes.
Regarding the hotdog, the State of California definitely considers it a sandwich. As for the quesadilla, we couldn’t find anything specifically detailing whether it is or is not considered a sandwich in California. New York, on the other hand, states that a sandwich is anything “made on bread, on bagels, on rolls, in pitas, in wraps, or otherwise, and regardless of the filling or number of layers.” Is a quesadilla a sandwich? For now, here in California, sure! Legally there is nothing (we found) that says otherwise. The real question is “for how long?”

Celebrate Christmas For Days During Las Posadas

A Wonderful Way To Celebrate The Holidays

We are finally in the last month of the year; the weather is at it’s lowest temperatures, decorations are up, and Christmas is closing in. Christmas is a joyful time of unveiling presents and gathering with your family for delicious home cooking. However the holiday is ultimately celebrated for one day, but there is another Christmas tradition that is celebrated across Latin America for numerous days. It is ‘Las Posadas’, a wonderful tradition that has been celebrated for over 400 years. This is a nine day celebration that strongly continues today in Latin communities. The holiday may not be recognized to Westerners, but it is indeed a wonderful way to spend Christmas with your family.

Nine Days of Celebration

‘Las Posadas’ is a series of procession and parties held every night from December 16th to December 24th, leading up to Christmas Day. The nine days symbolize the “novenario”, the nine days of religious observance based on the number of months, Mary had Jesus in her womb. Posadas are usually held in neighborhoods in Mexico and is quickly becoming popular in the US. On each evening, a reenactment of Mary and Joseph’s difficult journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of shelter is performed, by a man or a woman, young or old.

Re-enactments and Festivities

Every evening, the re-enactment will take place at a different house as the performers dress in costume with Mary sometimes riding a donkey. The process of Las Posadas is that Mary and Joseph travel from house to house, asking each resident for shelter by singing a special song (La Cancion Para Pedir Posada). They are given permission to enter when the resident of the house sings back to them offering festive foods such as hot tamales and hot ponche. Attendants may dress as shepherds and angels, holding candlesticks and paper lanterns along the way. The ritual ends when the entire procession is in the house, giving a prayer. The rituals are often followed by Christmas carols, Christmas star pinatas for the children, and a feast.

Nochebuena and Misa de Gallo

The last day of the Posadas is Christmas Eve. On this day, families will celebrate Nochebuena (“goodnight” in Spanish). As claimed by writer Connor Adams Sheets, Nochebuena is the biggest Christmas feast for the culture, usually held in family households. The dinner often features roast pork (lechon) surrounded by plates of traditional Mexican sides such as rice, beans, tamales, and salads. The celebration of Nochebuena usually lasts until the next morning on Christmas Day. The evening’s festivities is topped off with Misa de Gallo (Mass of Roosters), a midnight mass that commemorates the birth of Jesus and based on the legend of the rooster who announced to the world his birth. Sparklers and fireworks are brought out celebrating until the dawn of Christmas morning. Christmas presents are also opened at midnight and Christmas Day is used as a full day of rest, recuperating from the festivities from the night before.

Mexican Food is Healthy and You Should Know How

Posted on
Mexican food is healthy and a delicacy, that can sometimes be impossible to ignore. People love Mexican food and in the state of California, it is engrained in the culture. However, is eating too much of it healthy for you? People love it and it’s starting to show up on more menus across the nation, but it’ll be wise for eaters to know if there are healthy options to the cuisine, as well as what the unhealthy options are.

Benny’s Tacos & Chicken Rotisserie is West LA’s reliable Mexican food hub for delicious rotisserie chicken, tacos, quesadillas, burritos, and so much more. We want to help you navigate our menu when you’re looking for healthy choices. We also want to give you some tips to avoid foods in high calories, sodium, and fat. Some individuals may worry that this cuisine will be detrimental to their current diet; rest assured, you won’t have to worry. The common misconception about Mexican food is that it’s not good for you and we’re here to help disprove it.

Mexican Food is one of the most Popular Cuisines in the US

Mexican food has become one of the most eaten cuisines in the US and has become a constant staple in the average Americans’ diet. A lot of the items in the menu of Mexican restaurants in the US can be loaded with sodium and saturated fat. Nachos smothered with melted cheese and a hearty dose of sour cream can certainly give an individual a fatty sensation. Furthermore, when the average Mexican entrees include beef, chicken, cheese, fried tortillas in huge bulks; how can you eat healthy?

Skip the Chips and Salsa

The basket of delectable tortilla chips and savory salsa is often irresistible, but if you are worried about your diet, then it would be better a large basket of only that. Chips & salsa contains too much fat and calories.

Chicken Instead of Ground Beef

It’s widely known that chicken is much healthier to eat than ground beef. For those who may not know, or need a little convincing beef (and red meats in general) tend to have more cholesterol and saturated fat than chicken according to Heart.org. White meat, like chicken also contains fewer calories, for those who still want to have Mexican food but are shaving off a few calories. At Benny’s, not only do we have Rotisserie chicken but Chipotle chicken as well. So choose chicken as your preferred protein for your burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and even nachos! With Rotisserie chicken we also offer it as a Whole chicken, Half chicken, or Quarter chicken, for those who are looking for a great chicken dish without all the extra ingredients that come with items like burritos and nachos.

Come visit us in Santa Monica to check out our great Mexican menu, full of healthy or healthier options that actually taste good!

Impress The Rest With Great Burrito Eating Etiquette

Posted on

Burrito Eating Mess

In some ways, burritos are very similar to hamburgers. They’re both some of the most casual foods in every hungry eater’s minds, both edible treasures usually devoured with your hands, both are a staple in their cultures, and both can get pretty darn messy when you eat them. Walk into any Mexican food joint and tell us that you have not seen the inside of a burrito being scattered all over a plate. Burritos are several delicious ingredients of beans, rice, sour cream, meat, cheese; all held together by a single soft tortilla; there’s no way to know how long it will hold until it falls apart. However, believe it or not, there are right and wrong ways to eat a burrito. For this blog, we want to address some tips into the perfect burrito-eating etiquette and some ways to avoid when eating them.

Things to Avoid

Let’s directly dive in to what you should not do when devouring your burrito. These are several rookie moves people may take because they simply do not know any better.

1. Unwrapping the Entire Burrito

Bean Trio

Normally, burritos are wrapped in foil or paper. This is for good reason. The foil helps in preventing the burrito from falling apart as the wrapping may not be tight enough to hold the ingredients in. Pick it up with your bare hands; the burrito may implode right in front of you.

2. Laying It Down

Southwest Burrito

If you put your burrito on its side after taking a bite of it, some of the filling might drip out. Instead, place it upright, standing up if you need to put your burrito down and rest your hands. As long as the wrapping is secure and rolled well, then you can safely let go of your burrito, but if it’s not and it’s a little floppy; we recommend you to never let it go.

The Right Ways To Eat

Now, let’s discuss the cleaner and proper routes to take when chowing down a burrito.

1. Peel Down the Foil or Wrapping

While keeping the majority of the burrito wrapped in foil, peel down just over a quarter of the foil, maybe just an inch or two when you start eating. DO NOT UNWRAP THE ENTIRE BURRITO. The leftover wrapping should safely keep it all together. After unwrapping a little bit of it, stand it up and start eating!

2. Start at the Corner

As you start eating, bite the top corner of the burrito while holding it lightly. Then trim and work your way across to keep the line even. If you do start by biting in the middle, it’s more likely that the filling will fall out.

3. Use Both of Your Hands

Grabbing your burrito with both hands will keep it sound and steady. Just don’t squeeze the burrito too tightly.

4. Cut it In Half


Some burritos can come out rather big, maybe too big to handle. If you want to share or minimize the risk of spilling, cut it in half. A halved burrito may spill more, so keep a fork on your side. Also, remember to continue keeping it in the foil, peeling slowly as you work your way down.

5. The Final Finish

Best part about keeping the burrito in the foil is that you can save it or take a break anytime you want. But when are nearing the end of your meal, this is when you can fully unwrap whatever is remaining of the burrito. Unfold the upper tortilla inwards to create your own little dumpling and savor those last bites. It’ll be like your own victory lap!

Practice Your New Etiquette at Benny’s

Take your new burrito-eating etiquette to the test when you stop by Benny’s Tacos & Chicken Rotisserie in West LA and Santa Monica! Come say hello to flavorful options of the ever-classic burrito!

Have the Best New Year’s Finger Foods on Display

End the Year Just Right

This month marks another end to the year. With New Year’s Eve on the horizon, it’s time to reminisce about the past year’s ups and downs, new year’s resolutions, and, most importantly, the food you’ll be serving at your annual New Year’s Eve party. Having the right type of food is crucial for any party, let alone the last party of the year, so why not go with the best type: Mexican food! Most parties usually go with the same basics such as chips, pretzels, pizza, and hot dogs. This time, if you choose to cater with Benny’s Tacos & Chicken Rotisserie, you’ll have on display several amazing choices to end the year with a bang. Fortunately for you, Benny’s Tacos offers catering that includes easy-to-eat, delicious Mexican cuisine. For this blog, let’s highlight the best Mexican New Year finger foods that you must get for the big party.

Ultimate Finger Foods


One thing that is always at a New Year’s Eve bash is scrumptious finger foods. When people attend an end of the year party, they usually concentrate more on champagne and cocktails than eating elaborate dinner meals. Finger foods are simple enough where people can eat, mingle, and enjoy their glasses until the clock strikes midnight. This year, put aside the usual potato chips and dip, pigs in blanket, crackers and cheese and replace them with some homemade tortilla chips and guacamole, tacos, and quesadillas.

Try our crunchy, perfectly seasoned tortilla chips and pair it with our guacamole dip. Both are made very fresh on the day it’s ordered. Quesadillas are an easy bite layered with cheese and filled with your choice of cheese, rotisserie chicken, al pastor, steak. It’s an easy staple that made even better with a side of sour cream.


Food You Can Count On


Al pastor tacos. Yum!

Some New Year finger foods that you can always rely on would be our tacos. A Mexican cuisine favorite that is simple, tasty, and unforgettable. Our tacos are cooked perfectly and with our catering, you can build the perfect taco that suits your tastes. We use fresh flour tortillas and you can pick from carne asada, chicken, al pastor, shrimp, carnitas, and fish. Vegetarians won’t have to worry about FOMO (“fear of missing out”) either. Veggie eaters can relish in grilled veggies and Portobello mushrooms filled in our soft tortillas. In the end, taco eating won’t be complete without that delicious fresh salsa, cheese, cilantro, onions, beans, pinto beans, grilled jalapenos, and rice.


Scrumptious Veggie tacos

Gotta Have the Main Dish

Even at a party where the food isn’t at the forefront, you still want to have a main dish. Benny’s Tacos has the answer for you. Our slow-cooked rotisserie chicken is one of the best in the business; marinated with garlic & special herbs and accompanied by your choice of Spanish rice, beans, or seasoned French fries. Wrap our chicken in our homemade corn & flour tortillas for maximum enjoyment.

Perfect Dessert

Finally, what’s the best finger food dessert of all time? Yes that will be those toothsome deep-fried churros, dressed with sugar and cinnamon. A quick eat and perfect dessert to your last meal of the year.

Mexican New Year Traditions

After party goers are finishing up their Mexican meals, be sure to remind them and yourself some Latin New Year’s Eve traditions that you can and should adapt this year. Some that will bring you good fortune would be burning candles, surrounded by lentils, beans, rice, corn, and cinnamon or throwing a bucket of water out the window. However, our favorite has to be eating 12 grapes before midnight. Instead of a midnight kiss, eating a dozen grapes will bring you good luck in the new year.

Benny’s Will Bring the Best Food to You

Now you’re thinking that maybe you won’t have time to cook and prepare all these delicious New Year finger foods we just listed, but you’ll happy to know that Benny’s Tacos & Chicken Rotisserie is a local Mexican food stop that specializes in catering and delivering great Mexican foods in bulk.

Switch It Up This Year and Have a Mexican Thanksgiving!

Posted on

A Different Spin on Thanksgiving

Switch up your Thanksgiving this year by having a Mexican Thanksgiving! Traditionally, Thanksgiving consists of turkey, mashed potatoes, ham, green bean casserole, cornbread, and pumpkin pie. However this Thanksgiving, you can wow your guests by sliding in items from our menu to add a Mexican Thanksgiving flare. You and your guests will be blown away at how well our items actually compliment a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.


People usually provide snacks ranging from pretzels and peanuts to salami and crackers. This Thanksgiving, try our nachos and supreme fries instead. With your choice of tortilla chips or French fries, you can have black or pinto beans, along with melted cheese, pico de gallo, sour cream, and guacamole. You can have the nachos or supreme fries with steak, al pastor, rotisserie chicken, chipotle chicken, or shrimp. To compliment your Thanksgiving meal with white meat like turkey, we suggest using chicken for your nachos or supreme fries. Tired of boring chip and dip? Try ordering our guacamole as the dip you can use for your chips and crackers. You can taste the richness from our guacamole in every bite. Made from fresh avocados, we splash just the right amount of lemon juice to balance the richness out. Swap the chips out for tortilla chips and your guests will be thankful for the appetizer, while they’re anxiously waiting for the turkey dinner.


Your Thanksgiving sides will be even easier with side dishes from Benny’s Tacos. Instead of green bean casserole, macaroni and cheese, or mashed potatoes; try swapping the dishes out for beans or rice. Looking for something that goes well with cornbread? Our tasty pinto beans are seasoned to perfection and the texture of our refried pinto beans really contrasts with the flakiness of cornbread, creating a yummy pair. Interested in adding a little more meat to your meal? Try ordering a few of our rotisserie chicken wraps. Our wraps are created in a fresh flour tortilla with lettuce, avocado or guacamole, cheddar/jack cheese, and finished with chipotle sauce. By using side items from Benny’s Tacos you’ll be able to spend more time on the turkey and dessert, than worrying about side dishes.


Try Chicken Instead of Turkey

Not interested in cooking turkey this year (after all it takes hours to cook) or just simply couldn’t find one because it was last minute? Benny’s Tacos has you covered! We have slow-cooked rotisserie chicken that is marinated with garlic and special herbs. In fact, three of our whole chickens can be used in place of one turkey, to feed all of your guests. Our rotisserie chicken menu is a popular favorite at Benny’s with options like, whole, half, and quarter. For a holiday like Thanksgiving you might want to order our family combo with two whole chickens with your choice of two sides and a side of guacamole, garlic paste, and tortilla chips. This combo also comes with a choice of flour or corn tortillas. With so many options to choose from on our menu, you can spice up your Thanksgiving this year giving guests memorable choices like our appetizers, sides, and chicken items. At Benny’s Tacos, we pride ourselves on cooking up delicious authentic Mexican food. Any of the items on our menu will help you create the dining experience you want this Thanksgiving and your guests will appreciate the different spin this year!
The Rotisserie Chicken are among the very best!

Five of the Best Guacamole Recipes

Posted on

Holy Guacamole!

With the right guacamole recipes you can create a heavenly dish that hits all of your taste buds. Mastering guacamole recipes can make you the life of any party when you bring the side dish to everyone’s delight. Benny’s Tacos is no stranger to guacamole recipes. In fact the place of origin for guacamole is in Mexico.

At Benny’s, most of our dishes come with a side of our flavorful guacamole that perfectly accompanies your meal. There are even a few items that even come with guacamole in them, like our California burrito which comes with your choice of protein, (steak, chicken, etc.) guacamole, cheese, sour cream, pico de gallo, salsa, and French fries.

Because we pride ourselves on our classic guacamole recipe, we wanted to give you a few unconventional recipes so you can make your own version of homemade guacamole and put your own twist to your meals.

Guacamole Recipes Galore!

1. Tropical Fruit Guacamole: For this tropical twist you can serve up to 4-6 people with the proper amount of ingredients. Just mash up the avocados and add the remaining ingredients for a taste of the tropics. Prepare this dish with the below ingredients:

• 3 medium ripe avocados
• 1/2 cup finely chopped pineapple
• 1/2 cup finely chopped mango
• 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
• 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
• 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
• 1 tablespoons lime juice
• 1 garlic clove, minced
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2. Pina Colada Guacamole: This inspiration is courtesy of Closet Cooking who came up with a really delicious concoction. What we love about this guacamole recipe is that it adds in a little bit of rum, which gives the guacamole a punch of flavor. The ingredients they listed are:

• 2 large avocados
• 1/2 cup pineapples, diced
• 2 tablespoons coconut cream
• 1 tablespoon rum
• 1 tablespoon lime juice
• 1 jalapeno pepper, finely diced
• 1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
• 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
• salt and pepper

3. Tofu Guacamole: Moving away from the tropical types of guacamole, tofu guacamole is a vegan recipe. This kind of guacamole can even be used as sandwiches as International Vegetarian Union suggests. Not surprisingly the softness of the tofu gives this recipe a creamy taste, which is great for people who are looking for a guacamole that isn’t as chunky. For this recipe use:

• 1/3 lb tofu
• 1 avocado
• 1/4 cup or less chopped onions
• two fresh garlic cloves
• 1/2 a lime of lime juice
• 1 chopped tomato
• salt

4. Pomegranate Guacamole: Pomegranate is a delicious fruit that is also a rich source of Vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber, and anti-inflammatory properties. This makes pomegranate not only good but good for you. Mash up some avocado with this special fruit and the following ingredients:

• 2 large avocados
• 1 cup of pomegranate seeds
• 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
• 1/4 cup chopped green onion
• 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
• 1 serrano chile pepper
• salt and pepper

5. Avocado Free Guacamole: Chocolate Covered Katie came up with a really inventive way to make guacamole without the use of avocados. For Katie the main ingredient is asparagus (of all things!) and as a substitute it can compete with avocados! For those who aren’t used to asparagus, know that is a good source of fiber and is high in folate, as well as vitamins A, C, E and K. Unlike the above recipes, which used avocados as the base, this recipe is made slightly different. For this recipe you blend the ingredients with steam asparagus in a food processor until very smooth (all ingredients with the exception of the onions). The full list of ingredients are below:

• 34-36 skinny spears of asparagus, trimmed
• 1 cup plus 2 tbsps peas
• 2 tbsp mayonnaise
• 1/2 a lime of juice
• 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
• 1/2 tsp cumin
• 1/8 tsp salt
• 2 tbsp diced red onion

The Delightful Flavors of a Mexican Breakfast

Posted on

Spice Up Your Morning

Where most traditional breakfast dishes can be light, a Mexican breakfast offers an array of heavy, delicious dishes. We at Benny’s Tacos & Chicken Rotisserie pride ourselves in serving the best in comfort and casual Mexican cuisine to all diners in the Los Angeles and Santa Monica communities. Of course, we serve the favorites such as tacos, burritos, rotisserie chicken, fajitas, and quesadillas, but for the rest of this blog, we want to highlight our tasty Mexican breakfast items.

Multiple Amazing Ingredients


American Grande!

In Spanish breakfast translates to “el desayuno.” According to Mr. Breakfast the tortilla is the defining element of a Mexican breakfast. In fact, the tortilla is even referred to as the “Bread of Mexico.” At Benny’s Tacos, we include tortillas in a few of our breakfast dishes like our Huevos Rancheros (which comes with two eggs any style, pinto or black beans, queso fresco, red sauce, and corn or flour tortillas) and our popular American Grande (complete with two eggs any style, potatoes, four piece bacon, two pancakes, tortillas).


Breakfast Burrito!

Like most of the Mexican dishes, a Mexican breakfast is no different when it comes to spices and dishes with vibrant colors (think chili peppers and chorizo). At Benny’s we have a mouth watering Breakfast Burrito which has tasty ingredients like scrambled eggs, cheddar/jack cheese, potatoes, chorizo (although you could substitute this with bacon), pinto or black beans and pico de gallo. Our Breakfast Burrito is a filling way to start your day!


Huevos Rancheros!

Refried beans are a natural choice for some of our breakfast items, because they are a Mexican staple. Our American Grande, Huevos Rancheros, Breakfast Burrito, dishes all come with a choice of pinto or black beans. In America eating beans for breakfast may seem like a foreign idea but in Mexico beans are a prominent addition to the majority of dishes. As a buddy to most Mexican dishes, it’s a great treat as a breakfast item for Americans who aren’t used to beans (particularly in the morning!).

Wake Up All Day at Benny’s


Breakfast Quesadillas!

For those in love with any of our dishes mentioned above just know at Benny’s Tacos you have the luxury of ordering from the Breakfast menu all day. Located in Santa Monica and near LAX, swing by and give one of our Mexican breakfast items a try!
