Hungerlust: The Migas Breakfast Tacoo takes us to Austin, Texas, called by many the American home of the breakfast taco. Veracruz All Natural Tacos doubles down for breakfast by filling their freshly-made corn tortillas with MIGAS — the homestyle breakfast dish that combines leftover fried tortillas with eggs, cheese and salsa. What could be malo? [Video by Mark Choi.]
Alien invaders tried to mess with the gringos at the Alamo in 1836, but they didn’t count on brave defenders Laurence Harvey, John Wayne, Richard Widmark, Charles Bronson, Yul Brynner, James Coburn, Clint Eastwood, Henry Fonda, Terence Hill, Steve McQueen, Gian Maria Volonte, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach. Far Alamo documents the epic battle they never taught you in school.

Newbie vlogger Jose Reyes visits three taquerias in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley and shares his impressions. Because we are committed to accurate portrayals of whatever it is we seek to accurately portray, we asked POCHO’s Texas Burro Jefe Beto Mesta aka Eres Nerd if this video was legit. “Yup!” he replied.
Nicole Lopez is a real estate agent who knows what people want — TACOS!
Paraphrasing the ABC13 Eyewitness News report,
What is the deal with White People and why do they love their guns so much? This animated short — A Brief History of the USA— was included in Michael Moore’s Bowling For Columbine.
In Bridgeport, Texas, near Dallas, the La Campechanita Taqueria trailer (now up on blocks) serves terrific tacos on corn tortillas so you won’t get all bloated and have to poop. Because Texas.
All the Mexican immigrant wanted was a hug and some conversation. His guera Texas girlfriend? Not so much. [Video by Luis Fernando Puente.]
Who cares if switching to Geico can save you 15 percent or more on car insurance?
If I were to have a car — or live in Texas — (both very unlikely scenarios) I’d totally call Jim Adler, aka El Martillo Tejano, who promises to protect my people (i.e. The Hispanics) from sleazy insurance companies and give us the most compensation possible in case of a car accident.
Watch Adler inform us about his services in the best Gringo-Spanish I’ve heard in a while.
Take it away Jim!

Just across the Rio Grande from El Paso is Ciudad Juarez, where suits are still zoot and chucos are still suave.
Photographer Francesco Giusti shared his Ciudad Juarez photos with Roads and Kingdoms and we’re sharing some with you.
Que Taco taqueria on the north side of San Antonio takes its flavors from the heart of Mexico.
There's a small stretch of soil north of the Rio Grande that's still part of the United States south of the Mexican border wall. The Atlantic went inside this No-Man’s Land to uncover what life is like in a place that feels like not-quite America, but not-quite Mexico.
¡Mira los lyrics:
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:
Folk/country singer songwriter Tish Hinojosa sings a song about a pilgrim’s progress in America — a Mexican pilgrim in Texas. Felipe, the father, lived in San Antonio, on The West Side of Town. That’s were Felipe met Maria…
What really goes on when Latinos for Trump throw a get-out-the-vote campaign party for their candidate? Pachanga for Trump goes into the belly of the GOP beast to find out the shocking truth. [Video by the Latino Comedy Project.]
When the kids at Eagle Pass Independent School District’s C.C. Winn High School — on the Mexico-US border west of San Antonio — planned a pep rally, they wanted it to reflect their heritage.
Internet is loving Texas school’s pep rally that looked, sounded more like a quinceañera
How would you like those little “Mexican power bars” delivered to your door all frozen and stuff? Got $110? There are three colors to choose from, all for just under $20 a pound!
Ughhhhhhhh. There goes another crazy Texas politico saying something crazy. This time it’s Austin City Councilman Don Zimmerman, who told a group of Latino parents and students who testified in front of the council, some in Spanish, to stop being moochers (basically).
It’s that time of the year — Hatch Chile Season.
Photos submitted to MUFON sure show something strange in the skies over a San Antonio high school named after the racist traitor Robert E. Lee. [All photos are minimized on this page. Click on an image to biggify.]
Here’s what the eyewitness/photographer reported to the Mutual UFO Network, and all of his photos:
“Western” adventure comics, true crime comics, and gringo-written history all came together when publisher Avon gave birth to a Pancho Villa issue as part of their notorious outlaws series:
In El Paso, mechanized squads of senior citizens sneak up on soldiers and offer them exotic foreign “Meals, Ready-To-Eat” with origins South of the Border. These metal-encased MREs are called “burritos,” according to the truck people. And the Fort Bliss soldiers like them!
Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) has deep feels about his gay brothers and sisters in space because an asteroid killed the dinosaurs and what about extra-terrestrial colonies like Matt Damon and God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. He shared his concerns on the floor of the United States House of Representatives in late May.
A ruca Tejana named Lisa Alamia had jaw surgery and emerged from the operation with a British accent.
It’s a rare but documented medical condition called foreign accent syndrome that typically occurs after people emerge from comas and other brain trauma.
This pinche pocha claims that the only foreign country she’s ever been to is Mexico — and we don’t mean San Antonio. Lisa doesn’t even watch Downton Abbey, let alone eat fish and chips.
Los Lonely Boys — three pochos from Texas — rock hard on this burning version of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic Born on the Bayou and make it SPANGLISH at the end.

How do the three Texas locations (McAllen, Mission, Pharr) of De Alba Bakery de La Familia make tamales, donuts and rosca de reyes?
Glad you asked! We’ve got (three) videos:
Tamales (two kinds:)
