Weird Food Blog #3: Interesting Mexican Stuff With Chile and Tomato and stuff
YAY! Another food blog! Broke on a Saturday night and nothing to do but eat intriguing stuff!
So -- you folks in other part of the country realize that Los Angeles has a large Mexcian population, right? This is awesome from a foodie point of view, because, for the most part, Mexican food fucking rules. You think you have it good in Minnesota with your Little Tijuana's or whatever? THINK AGAIN, suckers.
Because guess what? I can go to my local grocery store and get BUDWEISER WITH CLAMATO, LIME AND SALT. That's right -- Budweiser with Tomato, Clam Juice, Lime and Salt. And so I did -- in my one hand, there is Budweiser Chelada, available at your local 7-11 store, and in my other is Lays Chile y Limon flavor potato chips.
(Note to Univision watchers: this is different than the CARTOON SERIES "Con Chile y Limon," which stars an anthropomorphic chile and an anthropomorphic lime.")
First off the chips. Happy to say they're delightful -- just the right amount of spicy, and the lime flavor provides a SLIGHT twang. Not as good as ketchup chips, but damn close -- a good regional foodstuff. Thanks, Lay's!
And now onto the Chelada. That face looks like I'm hating it, but that's really a look of -- "Hmmmmm, what the hell is THIS?" Because I'm serious: THIS STUFF IS DELICIOUS. Its like a Bloody Mary In A Can Made With Beer, and Trix and I are currently fighting over who gets more of it. And you have to understand: in the freezer is a bottle of grape-flavored vodka that tastes like kool-aid, and normally I'm like a moth to the flame of that stuff, but this is REALLY GOOD.
So in summation: CHELADA. Try it.
