I live in a part of the U.S. where “Spanglish,” a mashup of Spanish and English, is the common language. Around here, papas are potatoes. If you order a bowl of papas for breakfast you’ll get a big bowl of crispy hash browns with an egg on top. You’ll be asked “red or green” after you order, which is a reference to whether you want red or green chili on your food. (It’s unthinkable that you would order a bowl of papas without chili.) If you’re ever in Albuquerque, I can tell you where to find the best bowl of papas in town.
