I can't wait to try this - a taco made from fried chicken.

If you ever make it through Tejas or here, a chain called Torchy's makes the best fried chicken tacos. They are opening a spot at Minute Maid this year, too.

Ha I see them all the time, and if my daughter finds out they've got Torchy's in CO she'll drag those grandkids of mine there for it, I think she kept the Torchy's in Waco in business while she was there :lol:

A food critic in San Antonio is going to eat tacos every day for a year.  Lest you think this beyond his reach, he has previously done this in Austin, racking up 1,600 tacos in 2015. And he lost 10 pounds doing it.  Fresh, local, and low carb.

Sounds like Houston's next challenge. The metroplex's taco options are abundant.

Doesn't really seem all that crazy considering you can put almost anything in a taco.

I'll be happy to reproduce this experiment at Chipotle if someone wants to sponsor :lol:

I'm a bit surprised Chipotle doesn't do breakfast.  No potatoes, no eggs, so I guess it would mean at least laying in some new ingredients.  Also, maybe introducing eggs sets up potential allergies.  Does McD's still own a chunk of Chipotle?  At one time, it was a subsidiary :shock:  Dumb move to spin them off.

The Chipotle in Dulles Terminal B is open for breakfast, but only regular menu.  And so that begs the question, what's wrong with regular menu Chipotle for breakfast? :)

well, if you want a healthy heart, I suggest eating frijoles negros at every meal.  You know the saying about beans.

Quick check says McD's fully divested in 2006, although it looks like they'd been pulling out for a while before that.

A friend of mine here is José R. Ralat, a taco writer for the Observer, Texas Monthly, D Magazine, and Cowboys & Indians magazine (which is a real magazine). He's under contract to write an encyclopedic history of American tacos and he takes research trips to places to try their tacos and write off the expenses. One Sunday we went 'taqueando' (basically a verb that means 'going on a taco crawl') to 4 different places and I think I had 6 or 7 tacos :shock:

How does one become the "taco writer" for a publication?  And does anyone know of any openings for a "pizza writer" anywhere?????

Sounds really good.  I'd probably turn the garlic from "cloves" to "bulbs" and double, but otherwise spot on.
