Monday Munchies: Bacon-wrapped burritos, elote & loaded potatoes at Salsa Verde


Tucson Foodie’s “Monday Munchies” articles are brought to you by NatureMed.

It’s the season of giving and a season of eating as well. There’s turkey, pies of all flavors, candy canes, and, here in Tucson, a tremendous selection of Mexican food all around.

Since 2018, and now with two locations, Salsa Verde has been serving a perfect menu for a case of the Monday Munchies.

The Percherones Menu

Like the bacon-wrapped burrito at Los Perches, you can wrap any of the burritos on their percherones menu (huge flour tortilla burritos) in bacon. They’ve got six burritos to choose from: Supremo, Salsa Verde, Especial, Fajita, Chicken Chipotle, and Chicken Pueblo.

It’s just an extra $2 to wrap that beast of a burrito inside a bacon fortress.

Loaded Taters

If you think their burritos are loaded, take a gander at Salsa Verde’s baked potatoes. These puppies are loaded with creamy salsa, melted cheese, sour cream, and your choice of steak, steak fajita, chorizo, adobada, and chicken fajita.

Hand over an extra buck and they’ll sprinkle some bacon bits on that masterpiece.

Oh, but wait… there’s more 

Much like the award-winning homegrown products at Nature Med, the team at Tucson Foodie is always searching for the cream of the crop, And, speaking of cream, or crema, the Mexican Street Corn on the Cob at Salsa Verde, also known as the elote, is a must-try when paying a visit to the restaurant.

The steaming hot corn on the cob is slathered with mayonnaise and crema, covered in Cotija, and then drizzled with red salsa and cheese sauce.

Salsa Verde is located at 210 N. Pantano Rd. and 3894 N. Oracle Rd. For more information, visit salsaverderestaurant.business.site and follow Salsa Verde on Facebook
