Mexicue’s Thanksgiving Sandwich was really delicious – a spicy Thanksgiving meal on a bun. Initially, we were wary of a sandwich with mashed potatoes and stuffing on a roll (among other things), but it worked out great.
The first thing we picked up was the burnt ends chili slider ($3.50), which had sliced, pickled jalapeños and crema on top of the chili.

Wow, was this good! The chili was nice and spicy, especially the bites with jalapeños. The rice tempered the spiciness a bit, and the tortilla strips added a welcome salty aspect that played really well off the sweetness of the barbecue sauce.
Black beans, sour cream and smoked chipotle are fine, as are breakfast concoctions, pineapple and good old-fashioned shredded meats like machaca and ropa vieja.
