A Cuauhtemoc, Chihuahua, MX taqueria famous for its politically-inspired tacos has named a taco for Donald Trump.

Owner Humberto Erives-Beto explained Sunday that he was inspired by Trump’s controversial remarks.

“I just made it as most of the world considers him – with lots of tongue, very little brains and I put a bit of pig’s trompita,” said Beto, owner of Taqueria El Tio Beto. (Trompita = snout.)

POCHO’s Associate Naranjero ¡Ask A Mexican! Gustavo Arellano wrote a whole book about how tacos are American as apple pie — TACO USA — which you can buy on Amazon.

Taco Truck and Taco Ship, a short commercial for happy, fun futuristic taco technology by students Sum, Quintin, and Samuel of the Blaine County School District in Idaho, proves Gustavo’s point. Also on sale at Amazon. 😉

bryanrecord45In 1959, country singer Larry Bryant released a 45 celebrating his love of Tiquela & Mexican Beer. Music trade magazine Billboard called it “interesting” — not a good sign — and the record never made much of a splash.

But the original 45 (#101 — the first release?) on Santa Fe Records is a $25 collector’s item these days, so Bryant and friends were validated over 50 years later.

And even though his speeling is owlfull, we’re 100% in agreement with Larry’s high opinion of the aforementioned beverages, as well as his love for Mexican señoritas, tacos, tortillas and beans. [Mas…]
