Tink-A-Tāko? TAY-KOH? What the heck is a tāko? Is it a San Antonio accent thing? Here’s a second Tink-A-Tako commercial with the same pronunciation:
Is Tia Lencha here. Gwhat is Mexican Thanksgiving Day you ask? Is Thanksgiving but with all Mexican food. What?!?! My gringo frends say. Oh no! How you can do that! Is crazy! And Tia Lencha say, no really.
When I help mijo with his homeworks, I learn that Thanksgiving come from a Puritan holiday in Englands. When it was the Reformation the Protestantes wanted to throw away all the Catholic holidays, even Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny!
Just a few easy ingredients and a strong stomach are all you need to make and enjoy these fantastic fusion vegan fandangos! Or not.
Start with a block of dried ramen noodles dipped in vegan egg-like goop, stew them in ramen juice, cut them into circles, fold them like tacos, then fill these little impersonators with fake chicken, bean sprouts, corn, cebollitas, wasabi (falso) mayonnaise. There you have it. Whatever.
Artist James Curran explains the method behind his madness in creating LAGifAThon:
In July I spent a month in Los Angeles where I animated a new GIF every day for 30 days inspired by something that happened during my stay.
See all the looping GIFs on Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram with #LAGifathon or follow me to keep up with the next Gifathon, coming soon…
Mexican President Vicente Fox beat a Donald Trump piñata after eating at a taco truck last week in Los Angeles. “Tacos will make America great,” Fox said.
Business Insider has the story:
During an appearance on El Show de Piolín in Los Angeles, former Mexican President Vicente Fox found a new way to demonstrate his often-stated criticisms of Donald Trump: Beating a piñata of the Republican presidential candidate.
Mexicans are invading America — crossing the border wall in their taco trucks. Recent surveillance video catches these ill eagles in action.
Americans are united in their reaction to the imminent threat of #tacotrucksoneverycorner if Hillary Clinton is elected. We saw it on the Internets, so it must be true!
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!
The Japanese poetic form consists of 17 syllables, in three phrases of 5, 7, and 5.
The fundamental aesthetic quality of … haiku is that it is internally sufficient, independent of context, and will bear consideration as a complete work.
Here are a few for inspiration:
Different strokes for different folks
Any sane tourist in Warsaw would want to try pierogi, keilbasa, galompkis, kasha, borscht, and a local wodka, but the Poles want more than that. Thankfully, The Taco Libre food truck looks totally legit.
