pineapple

He lives in a piña under the sea — Bob Esponja — and you can too! Two lovely pineapples for just 25 pesos, or about $1.33. Test your piña for ripeness by pulling out a leaf at the top as you sing along with the Sponge Bob theme song below. If it pulls out easily, it’s ripe (according to my Abuelita). The leaf, you pervert. Get your mind out of the gutter.

Mexican-style food products maker Tio Pablo, in New Zealand, shows us how to make “pork and pineapple tacos” using their Mayan Gold chile powder and mango salsa picante. PRO TIP: “Coriander” = cilantro.


Looks pretty good, actually. A legit chicken teriyaki recipe, authentic pico de gallo/salsa made with grilled piña, and of course everything tastes better on a tortilla. We have three questions, though:

  1. Where did the rice come from?
  2. How can it be a “healthier” with a lettuce wrap instead of a tortilla? Corn tortillas are GLUTEN FREE, ENGLISH DUDE. Also, no tortilla, no taco.
  3. Wassup with the Christmas music soundtrack on a video uploaded March 27?


Salvador Santiago demonstrates how he makes tacos al pastor in a video by NOTIMEX, an official government propaganda agency. Still legit, though. PRO TIP: “Trompa” means “horn” and reflects the shape of the meat on the vertical rotisserie spit. The vertical spit — estimated birthdate 1950s — is either from Turkey or Greece or Arab countries in the Eastern Mediterranean, and that’s not an argument where POCHO wants to choose sides.
