Is it a coincidence or is it fate that National Taco Day falls on what most refer to as Taco Tuesday?

For the past week, my friends and I have pondered and planned our Tuesday night. It’s finally feeling like fall in South Mississippi, so we decided to have a little bonfire in celebration. We normally make turcos (turkey tacos) during the week, so I’ve been doing a little research on how to spice things up. In the midst of my research, I came across an article and quickly learned something. I’ll share this little nugget of information with you guys: No matter how you celebrate – with friends, alone, with a nice bottle of tequila; you will not celebrate National Taco Day as well as the people of Corpus Christi.

Chacho’s Tacos is home to the All-Mighty Chacho’s Taco Challenge – where customers are challenged to scarf down a nearly four pound taco in under 10 minutes 😳 The grande taco is made up of 14 inches of homemade tortilla, beans, cheese, carne guisada, egg, potatoes and bacon. (Picture posted below.)


Fun Fact: Only 5 people have finished the challenge in 18 years. Talk about a lot of taco OR if you’ve tried challenges such as this and failed, all you have to say tomorrow is simply, “I don’t wanna taco bout it.”

Tacos wouldn’t be right without tequila, so I have included a refreshing drink recipe, courtesy of Don Julio. Here is the link:
