Route 40 changes course from empanadas to choripan

When Felipe Cufre moved from Argentina to Denver three years ago to join his American wife, he knew he wanted to do something related to food. He was working on a cookbook when he stumbled on the inaugural Civic Center Eats food-truck gathering in Civic Center Park in 2010, which inspired him to create his own truck. And so Route 40, named for one of the main highways in Argentina, started rolling in 2011.

But Cufre had to change the truck's culinary course earlier this year.
