Twisted American doesn’t disappoint

Most of what this truck offers falls under the umbrella of fusion cuisine, so the name makes perfect sense. “Familiar American staples with a twist” describes a lot of food in the Springs, but we find a few things that do stand out when we stop by at the Hump Day food truck rally. We hit their offered burgers and chicken sandwiches, each of which comes with fries.

The Freshly Feta chicken sandwich comes with roasted red pepper, feta, spinach, tomato, red onion and basil mayo. Texturally, there’s a lot of creaminess, and the 5-ounce chicken breast carries more roasty flavor than we expect, which goes well with the red pepper and onion, both of which stand strong in this sandwich. We also get a ⅓-pound Border Burger, which has two patties sandwiching whole green chiles, refried beans, mango habanero salsa, smashed avocado and “Baja sauce.”

The salsa and beans get lost flavor-wise, but the green chiles play a big flavor part, and there’s a nice Mexican/Southwestern spice profile in there overall. Those beans do give a nice, creamy texture, too. We’re not wowed by either, but neither are we disappointed.
