“Our raspberry-chipotle chicken salad is AMAZING with tomatillo ranch dressing and black beans.”
Made with high-quality malted flour for wonderful texture and flavor. And made with palm oil rather than lard for shortening, so they’re vegetarian!
Countless recipe tweaks went into recreating the tortillas we love from (way down low) on the West Coast. Our dough is made daily, in store, and quickly cooked before your eyes on a traditional hot comal.
Our long grain (vegetarian) rice is made with veggie broth, tomatillo-cilantro sauce, butter and fresh lime juice for a perfect balance of natural citrus and sweetness. It’s gently cooked al dente for a tender bite and to perfectly soak up our sauces. (No wonder some say it’s their favorite part of every Costa meal.)
Our black beans are gently cooked until perfectly plump to reach their full flavor potential and perfect texture.
These aren’t just any beans. Our little overachievers come from farms in the Dakotas and are made from scratch every morning. All vegetarian, they’re seasoned with cilantro, garlic, green bell peppers and our secret bean spice. Then patiently simmered (never boiled) to gradually convert starch to sugar, while keeping the skins beautifully intact. This makes our beans naturally sweet and nicely plump and tender (not mushy or milky).
Our smoky-southwestern pinto beans are made with fresh green pepper, onion, cilantro and our secret bean spice.
Our refried beans reflect the subtlety of the pintos they’re made with; naturally sweet and creamy with a hint of heat and phenomenal flavor.
Our ultra-tender pork cushion is first seared then braised in cola. It’s fall-apart tender with unforgettable sweet & savory flavor.
Top-shelf meats; wonderfully fresh, clean, moist & tender. And sustainably sourced from suppliers of high-end restaurants. Plus, super-satisfying vegetarian options that lack in nothing. (Happy to hold the cheese if you like.)
Moist and melt-in-your mouth comfort food. Brined in salt for 24 hours, then slow-braised until fall-apart tender.
Iowa Premium Beef, beautifully marbled & wonderfully tender. Gently grilled on an open flame to smoky perfection. Then rested 3-5 minutes with butter to seal in moisture & flavor.
Tender shrimp that’s been caramelized in honey & butter. Then balanced with mango & lime—it’s sublime!
A fresh & clean, light & healthy option that’s remarkably tender, moist and delicious.
Fresh-from-the-patch berries, beautifully balanced with hints of the smoky Southwest. It’s a sweet & savory twist on a light & healthy choice.
