Your one-stop shop for all things Latin/Hispanic/Mexican
Looks like advocating for equality and social justice doesn’t go down well among some people. Take some Iowans, who found a sign posted outside a Mexican restaurant a little too… politically correct.
The story goes like this. Alfonso Medina, owner of La Carreta Mexican Grill in Marshalltown, Iowa, had placed the below sign outside his restaurant as a way to take a stand in favor of science, social justice, equality… crazy, right?
According to CNN, the offending sign brought lots of hate mail to Mr. Medina, including one letter that actually blew up on social media. Said letter came from a customer, who addressed Mr. Medina by name, said he had recently spent a lot of money in his restaurant but that –upon seeing the sign– he’d never eat there again. This person actually ended the misive by calling Medina “a leftist Marxist.”
Mr. Medina took to Instagram to respond by saying: “We’re sorry your burrito had to get political, but it was the only way y’all would listen.” The IG post ended with a bang: “No Love, No Tacos.” Then, just like any genuine “leftist Marxist,” would do, Mr. Medina copyrighted the No Love, No Tacos slogan; adopted it for his restaurant and even paid for a large billboard to display it.

I’m sorry to inform you Totino’s has released “mozzarella cheese bites coated with Takis Fuego seasoning,” because 2020 really, really hates me.
These “poppable” rolls feature a mozzarella-like filling and can be found at the frozen aisle of most major supermarkets for “only” $5 each.
Now if y’all excuse me, I’m going back to bed and try to wake up in 2021.
Say what you will about my people; we’re the awesomest bunch and all…
Even Google Translate knows that the best translation for “Dulce de leche” is caramel, but oh well…
Only in America, the land of opportunities, you can have a yummy, double celebration which looks to have been conceived specifically with this blogger in mind.
