A Mexican immigrant brings a taco truck to Brooklyn, helps the neighborhood, has fun, and makes money. It’s the American Dream!
Hola. Is Tia Lencha here. Today I going to help you make my new faborite taco. The other day I saw my mijo making sonething in the kishen. I so proud. He like to cook like his mama.
I say, “Mijo, what you making?”
He say, “A taco.”
I see that he was using corn tortillas, crumble Oaxaca cheese, scramble eggs, salsa chipotle, and potato ships. I was confuse.
Because of you know who and you know why, we thought it would be chingon to take a look back at the taco truck videos that have graced POCHO’s pages over the years.
Did we mention we love tacos?
In no particular order:
His father wanted him to stay in Michoacan, work on the family farm, and do construction, but Raul Morales crossed over from Mexico at 17 to pursue his culinary dreams. Now, at 44, he’s his own boss, and a master of tacos al pastor. “Chef Al Pastor” was interviewed at his Los Angeles restaurant Taqueria Vista Hermosa.
The reaction to last week’s dark warning by a Latino Trump supporter that unchecked Mexicans will lead to “taco trucks on every corner” has exposed a beautiful truth: America loves loncheras.
But far too many taco fans only think of the food and not the people who make it. They fight to legalize carne asada, but not the millions of raza without papers in this country whose comida they happily grub.#tacotrucksoneverycorner is the perfect opportunity to educate the unwoke—and that’s why we formed The Taco Truck Party.
People will trash Mexicans all day and the nation shrugs, but say one bad word against the taco truck down the street, and America revolts—and rightfully so.
The taco truck represents America at its finest: multicultural, forward-thinking, entrepreneurial, and with al pastor always, slowly twirling. They have spread from their birthplace of Los Angeles to all points of the United States, with street vendors and the chorizo guy who sells door to door not far behind.
But this important constituency has no national party fighting for them—until now.
Oh beautiful for taco trucks
On every corner YES
Fresh salsa on tortilla chips
Our country God did bless
Do you love tacos and the trucks that bring them to every corner?
Write a haiku to show your love!
