Week 24 brings you a takeout special. Due to circumstances of the weekend, we did not go out for dinner together as normal. Instead, I picked up a meal from a favorite nearby Mexican restaurant, El Cotija. Neither of us ventured outside of our comfort zones. Both of us picked our standard go-to entrees at El Cotija for this “comfort” meal.
For Matt, this go-to order is the Arroz con Pollo dinner. Grilled chicken strips are topped with melted cheese and served along with rice and a guacamole salad. Matt doesn’t care for the guac, so that means all the more for me. He always finds this meal to be very satisfying and delicious.
My choice at El Cotija is usually the Tacos de Carne Asada with corn tortillas. Beef strips and chorizo are mixed together for the taco filling. A side of pico de gallo, rice, and beans come with the tacos, but I always ask for guacamole salad instead of the rice and beans. Typically, after 1 or 2 tacos, I ditch the tortillas and mix the remaining meat and salad together. Outstanding!
Of course, I always ask for this hot sauce along with my tacos. I could not tell you whether this sauce comes from a bottle or is a house-made specialty, but it really hits the spot on the spiciness meter.
For consistently good Mexican food in Warner Robins, be sure to try El Cotija on Margie Drive. I can also attest that if you work with their staff ahead of time, they can accomodate large lunch crowds well.
