Rockee’s Restaurant, located in Downtown Pueblo, shared this photos of their Friday Special Rockee’s Bowl on Facebook, a dish unique to this downtown restaurant, that has many menu items that you can’t find anywhere else.
The Rockee’s Bowl is made with meat (choose from breaded or shredded chicken, Chicharrones, beef or pork), smothered mashed potatoes with your choice of Chile (green is most traditional), topped with Calabacitas, and shredded cheese.
For those of you who need interpreting, Calabacitas is a popular Southwest dish that means “little squash” in Spanish. Served with meat, this traditional squash and chile stew mixture becomes a main, as it’s served at Rockee’s (with corn, chiles, zucchini, mashed potatoes and meats), or it can be tucked into tortillas.
Chicharrones are made by frying pork (usually ribs) in fat, and are associated with various dishes or in Mexico, practically a food group of it’s own. Chicharrones can be mixed into soups, wrapped in warm tortillas, served as a side dish, or a a part of a full entree, as is the case of Rockee’s Bowl, featured for $7.95 Friday June 21st by restaurant owner Raquel Vallejos Vigil.
Rockee’s is located at 123 N. Main Street in downtown Pueblo and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and drinks.
