lengua


Lauren Hlushak bought some tongue and now she plans to make tacos. Can text messages from viewers (and Spanish-speaking amiga Anna) show her the right way to proceed? And is an Insta-pot the right tool for the job? [Mas…]


In the growing Latino community of Lexington, Kentucky (aka Mexington), immigrant Laura Patricia Ramirez and her family suspected the new “Spanish” influx into town might mean they could earn a living providing comida Mexicana to the neighbors. First they imported fresh tortillas from Chicago, and then started making their own. Now they own a tortilla/taqueria even the gabachos love — they come for the asada and stay for the lengua.

A Cuauhtemoc, Chihuahua, MX taqueria famous for its politically-inspired tacos has named a taco for Donald Trump.

Owner Humberto Erives-Beto explained Sunday that he was inspired by Trump’s controversial remarks.

“I just made it as most of the world considers him – with lots of tongue, very little brains and I put a bit of pig’s trompita,” said Beto, owner of Taqueria El Tio Beto. (Trompita = snout.)
