Hey kids! Here’s a video about how to make guacamole, with your host and chef Tio Choko.
(PNS reporting from the EEUU) Tex-Mex restaurants across the country are banding together this week to ensure the flawed traditions of margaritas, sombreros, maracas, bastardized Mexican food and overall cultural cluelessness are again propagated upon masses of uninformed Americans this Cinco De Mayo.
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:
Burrito Mariachi Mexican Grill, with three location on New York’s Long Island, posted a sexy slo-mo video of their food preparation. Try not to drool as you watch flying lechuga, grilling carne asada, guacamole in production, salsa from scratch, a cold bar, a hot bar, chopping cebollas, two kinds of arroz, frijoles, pico de gallo, and gigantic burritos being assembled. What’s for lunch by the way? Let’s get Mexican! [Video by JING.]
The Meso-American aguacate (renamed avocado by Spanish invaders) is a prehistoric fruit that shouldn’t even be around today, all because it’s a tough nut to swallow. The Science Show breaks it down.

At Stew Leonard’s, guacamole is its own ingredient — just add kale!
This the beginning of the end of the American middle class.
Stew’s Chunky Guacamole is prepared fresh daily by our culinary team with whole avocados, tomatoes, red onions, jalapeno peppers, a dash of salt, and a splash of freshly squeezed lime juice…. Plus, new for 2015, is Stew’s Kalemole, which is the addition of shredded kale to our traditional Chunky Guacamole!
Wine Pairing: Alto Vuelo Sauvignon Blanc — The citrusy, grapefruit component of this wine will pair nicely with the tangy, creaminess of the Guacamole and or the Kale Guacamole

Euro-wide discount supermarket chain Lidl is celebrating “Mexican Week” (it started Monday) at its stores in Romania.
We’ve traveled the world and the seven seas; who are we to disagree?
Cliches and stereotypes included at no extra charge.
- Go for it! Actually try that loco New York Times pea guacamole recipe that has been dividing the nation. Worst case scenario, it’s guácala but you can call your mama and brag to her that you ate an entire vegetable. Maybe she’ll make you some real guacamole as a reward!
- Got a fierce sweet tooth? Scandalize everyone by making this dessert guacamole with lots and lots of chocolate!
- Impress your Filipino friends by making this sabroso avocado milkshake with condensed milk. (Tell the metiches that ask you what it is that it’s full of nopales!)
- Just go ahead and throw everything in your ethnic identity in a bowl with this Chorizo-Queso Fresco-Guacamole!!
The Foo Fighters are very particular about the Mexican food required backstage.
YouTube hands-on math star Vi Hart makes a hexaflexagon tortilla for a delicious two-layer Flex-Mex taco. Kids: You CAN try this at home with a flour tortilla, a knife, guac, frijoles, pico de gallo and cheese and a little bit of patience and manual dexterity. Remember that doll that said, “Math is hard”? Forget that babosa.
Chemistry Cat knows how to make good guac. Add to his knowledge base here.
PREVIOUSLY ON GUACAMOLE:
(PNS reporting from CHIAPAS, MX) Subcommandante Marcos, leader of the Zapatista rebels (EZLN) in southern Mexico, has announced that he is leaving the group’s leadership.
He said he no longer spoke on behalf of EZLN but will instead focus on his restaurant empire in Chicago.
Sweet and Tasty TV’s Professor Oh checks out the Mexican food at Vatos Urban Tacos in Seoul, South Korea. It’s puro L.A. fusion style – Korean kalbi beef tacos a la Kogi, pork carnitas and Baja-style fish tacos. Fresh guacamole and cool Coronas, too. Not to mention Nutella nachos.
PREVIOUSLY ON MEXICAN FOOD:
The fast food chain goes through 97,000 pounds of avocados every day, and they’re concerned.
Americans will eat 100 million pounds of avocados on Super Bowl Sunday (that’s 100,000,000), mostly as guacamole:
Avocado growers in Mexico have figured out that Americans need a lot of avocados about now, and they’re always ready to meet the demand.
“They step up their volume for those weeks leading up to Super Bowl, and they do it each year,” said Steve Taft, President of Eco Farms Avocados Inc in Temecula. His 40-year old business grows and packs avocados, but also imports them from countries like Mexico, Chile, Peru, and New Zealand. He said this time of year, about 90% of the avocados consumed in the U.S. come from growers in Mexico.

(PNS reporting from MEXICO CITY) Felipe Roberto, star of the reality show Guac Dynasty, which follows the Roberto clan of rude and crude avocado wranglers through their struggle with weeds, bugs and family dysfunction, has been suspended by the Mexican Arte y Entretenimiento TV network (MEX A&E) after his hateful Tweet about Americans went viral, PNS has learned.
Roberto told his 3,827 Twitter followers that he was flying to Los Angeles for Christmas and he hoped he “didn’t get the gays” from the “Hollywood maricons.”
(PNS reporting from ATLANTA) After narrowly beating “Flamin’ Hot Cheetos,” “Kool Super Longs” and “40-Ounce Malt Liquor” to become the syrup flavor that “most accurately captures the taste of the African-American experience,” the winner, Chicken ‘N Waffles syrup, has been put into production by syrup giant Torani.
The family-owned company, known for sweet coffee additives like vanilla and chocolate syrups, is convinced white Americans will crave “the special tang this sweet ‘n’ sassy syrup adds” to the four-dollar lattes they consume several times a day.
Torani’s move is “baffling” and “an outrage,” Clarence K. Dabra, president of the Atlanta-based American Black Restauranteurs Association (ABRA) told PNS.
POCHO’s favorite candidate, the mariachi-like Mexican Mitt Romney, scored the combo plate of election success in the Super Taco Tuesday primaries but fellow Republican Rush Limbaugh stepped in a big pile of slut when he opened his fat mouth. Dear Rush: Are you finished? Then wipe yourself!
