The owners of the Azteca food truck--often parked near Sixth and Grove streets downtown--refer to it as the "Chilango." However, fans of the hexagon-shaped burrito call it the "UFO burrito" for its flying saucer-like shape. The recipe is similar to the fast-food abomination the "Crunchwrap Supreme," but the Azteca version is larger, packs more beef and uses real cheese instead of cheese sauce. A crunchy taco shell provides crucial architecture in the middle of the foodstuff.
