The Pepper Box Food Cart in Portland, Oregon is a tasty blend of Pacific NW ingredients prepared in a Southwestern style. The owner, Jim, brought his culinary experience from New Mexico, but is now blessing Portland with his homemade tortillas, which are both delicious and sturdy enough to hold all of the gooey goodness contained inside. With tacos for breakfast and quesadilla sandwiches for lunch, you get your pick of fresh ingredients paired with an irresistibly flavorful but not-too-spicy Chile créma. And, luckily for us, Pepper Box uses Tillamook in every standard dish offered.
