Pork People Present: A Puerto Rican’s Michoacan-style carnitas
The National Pork Board wants you to eat more of “the other white meat” and got Puerto Rico-born, Miami-based, Asian-gastropub-owning chef José Mendín to share how he makes Michoacan-style pork carnitas. We’re surprised by his use of condensed milk in the recipe, but that shows why we’re not a five-time James Beard Award nominee and he is!

Taco Thursday: World’s Longest Taco Triumph? (video)
Taqueros in Guadalajara put together a two-mile long line of tacos (de puerco) in an attempt to set a Guinness World Record, according to UPI:
…The group in Guadalajara put together the uninterrupted line of tacos using 2,645 pounds of pork.
The 9,047.24-foot-long line of tacos was constructed from ingredients from the state of Yucatan and the tasty tortilla treats were distributed to hungry onlookers after organizers collected the data they needed to submit to Guinness.
The attempt took about 6 hours.
Organizers said they are waiting to hear back from the record keeping organization.
A group in Mexico previously broke the world record for the largest flour taco in 2003 when they assembled a 35.9-foot-long taco that weighed in at 1,654 pounds.
A Day in the Life: Santa Apolonia taco truck, New Haven, CT (video)
La Vida Del Taco starts as the Santa Apolonia truck pulls up to its usual spot in New Haven, Connecticut and the work day begins.
You can get tacos de lengua and cabeza here, not just pollo and carnitas. Watch as the truck is turned from a vehicle into an assembly line as the cooks chop cilantro and piñas (!) and pickle chiles and cebollas. And what else? What is the deal with the pineapple? Where did the radishes come from?
Here comes a customer! Wow two nice thick tortillas per taco and whoa that is a lot of pollo! Next dude is hard core and goes for the lengua. Oh man, it looks like every order comes with fries.
God Bless America.

¡Japi Januka! A kosher carnitas y nopales burrito inside a donut (video)
The signature foods of Chanukah, which begins tonight, are potato latkes — as prepared by Hebrew homeboys Jaquann and Luis — and sufganiyot, Israeli-style donuts. Both foods, tu sabes, are fried in oil, commemorating the milagro at the heart of the Chanukah story.
Which is why, two years ago, before we thought of Mexican Turducken-style gag dishes we could attribute to Rick Bayless, Mexikosher chef (and Chopped winner) Katsuji Tanabe created a nopales and kosher carnitas burrito stuffed inside a donut/sufganiyot. Really.
