POCHO amigo Top Chef alumnus Katsuji Tanabe doesn’t want you to waste food. That’s why he’s sharing his recipe for chilaquiles.
Serve your snacks in style before we all get wiped out by climate change (like the dinosaurs) with this plastic, dishwasher safe Nachosaurus chips and dip ensemble by BARBUZZO.
According to POCHO Jefe-in-Chief Lalo Alcaraz 2017 Calendar, it’s Gucamole Wednesday, and that’s why we’re sharing the best guacamole video ever:
We’ll let Cooking With Benji tell the story:
Mexican food is great and curries are also great of all types from all sorts of places. Fajitas are also delicious, this recipe is a modification of a a fajita recipe with the secret ingredient of creme fraiche to make a cool but spicy and smooth curry.
What are they eating? Chips? Rolled taquito-looking snacks? Does she say “Mexican sweet chile?” We don’t know, but how can you go wrong when one crunchy bite magically turns this attractive Thai couple into tango-dancing Mexicans! [Mariachis not included.]
PREVIOUSY ON “MEXICAN” CHIPS IN EXOTIC FOREIGN COUNTRIES:
True story! In a cantina in the deserts of MexiArabia, the customers ate so many Cheetos Flames that their lips turned red. To cover up, they grew mustaches, and the donkeys too.
For those keeping track, a donkey in Arabic is “alhimar” الحمار . [Gracias to POCHO amigo BAF in Q8 for the translation help.]
Chicharrones are off limits for traditional Jews — pork is not kosher. But that doesn’t mean hungry Judios have to go through life without delicious fried cracklings of their own — they chow down on a crispy fried chicken skin preparation called gribeñes.
Remember? Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll, went to India in 1989 and shot a chips commercial wearing pointy boots? You don’t remember ever seeing it? Here it is. You’re welcome.
Nachos are exotic foreign fare in Merrye Olde Inglaterra, so you need someone to explain how they work. We think “trash food” is British for “junk food,” but these people also call cookies “biscuits” so who knows what they mean.
Anyhow, our Limey expert’s first step to acceptable nacho eating is the purchase of Doritos. Ruh roh.
Which is better — healthy nori seaweed snacks or fatty, spicy bad-carb-loaded chips? Your Abuelita knows best!

Cairo, Egypt’s Impact BBDO advertising agency has ‘Mexican’ chips for you! Our question: If this is Mexico, why is the WANTED sign on the sheriff’s office (and the sheriff’s sign) in English?
PREVOUSLY ON ‘MEXICAN’ COMMERCIALS:
Like a Biblical prophet of doom, a God-fearing Christian Conservative who tracks “Degenerate Culture” is trumpeting the news of a clear and present danger:
Hot and spicy tortilla chips are destroying the AMERICA WE LOVE WHICH USED TO EAT LOTS OF PATRIOTIC POTATO CHIPS NOT THESE ADDICTIVE ALIEN ABOMINATIONS.
Derby Mac (An American Patriot who has dedicated his life to loving his country and preparing his family for the National Apocalypse. He would like to thank the Founding Fathers, President Reagan and Jesus Christ for the opportunity to share Wisdom) writes:
They’re dark. They’re spicy. They’re one of the most alluring treats in our food aisles today. For a child, they’re something fancy, like attending a birthday party in a collared shirt.
For a man home alone, a single bag is as good as an entire meal. But what are we really getting ourselves into with these flashy foreign snacks?
Should we be at all concerned that Doritos are now more popular than good old-fashioned American potato chips?
Wil Wheaton (@WilW on Twitter) sure loves him some chips and salsa. [Hover over, then click the speaker icon in the top left corner of the video for Wheaton’s incisive commentary.]
PREVIOUSLY ON WIL WHEATON:
(PNS reporting from SAN BERNARDINO) Mary Hernandez has a problem: she’s addicted to Takis. The 17-year-old Californian cannot get enough of the spicy imported Mexican corn chips.
“She eats Takis all the time instead of real food,” lamented her mother Laura, while stirring a pot of beans. “She needs real food; look — she’s getting too skinny!”
Hernandez, a senior at San Bernardino High School, said her Takiphilia began when a friend offered her “just a little taste” behind the gym after school. She snuck a bite and has been madly munching away since.
“We know Al Qaeda, which has changed its name to Al Pastor, has camps with the drug cartels over there on the other side of the Mexican border,” he warned on C-SPAN.
“Arabs are now being trained to come in and act like Hispanics instead of radical Islamists. They teach them to say ‘homeboy’ instead of ‘habibi,’ they show them how to watch ‘telenovelas’ instead of Bin Laden videos. It’s pure evil!”
