While we don’t normally frequent Taco Bell for our taco fixes, there are certain times when even Taco Jesus is compelled to make a run for the border. This past Sunday was one of those times.
We had plans to go out for breakfast, but then we saw a commercial advertising Taco Bell’s new Naked Chicken Chalupa which basically looks like a taco with a “shell” made out of friend chicken. We’ve been intrigued by this new item since we first saw the ads so we decided to take a road trip to our neighborhood Taco Bell and give this bad boy a try.
We were not disappointed. The chicken “shell” was wrapped around the toppings of lettuce, tomato, and some sort of very tasty avocado ranch sauce, and this delight earns two thumbs up from Taco Jesus himself. Think outside the bun and get your fanny over to Taco Bell to pick up one of these taste delights, and tell them Taco Jesus sent you.
Our award winning Salsa Verde hot sauce, winner of Best Savory and Best Mild sauce at the 9th Annual Hot Pepper Awards, will be available with a limited edition St. Patrick’s Day label coming soon.
We will have a small number of bottles available online for sale however the majority of the bottles will only be available for purchase in person at one of our local Florida events. The first chance to purchase one of these limited edition bottles will be Saturday, February 25th at the Pierce Street Market in downtown Clearwater, Florida. These will be available on a first-come-first served basis, so we cannot guarantee any will be available at subsequent events.
Each limited edition bottle will feature a unique green label, and our Irish counterpart Tac O’Jesus. Each label will also be hand numbered to only a 72 bottle run. If any bottles remain after the Pierce Street Market event on the 25th we will post follow up locations online for your chance to pick up one of your own. Be sure to act quickly though because our last limited edition label, our Taco Jesus Scotch Bonnet Habaner HoHoHo Christmas edition sauce, sold out on the first day.
Here at Taco Jesus Hot Sauces we have a passion for the almighty taco, and while we feel there are very few people that are as passionate about them as we are we may have found a very close second. Continue reading
Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you taco disciples out there! We hope you and your special someone enjoy each other and the company of tacos, topped with Taco Jesus Hot Sauces of course, on this most glorious of days … Taco Tuesday & Valentine’s Day.
Don’t get me wrong, here at Taco Jesus Hot Sauces we love what we do. There is nothing better than creating awesome sauces and sharing them with the world, or is there? A reporter in San Antonio, TX is bringing the news of the San Antonio taco world to his readers this year with his “365 Days of Tacos” feature where he gets to sample and review tacos from some of San Antonio’s best restaurants.
As someone who grew up in TX where I learned my love of tacos, Tex-Mex and all things spicy, San Antonio is the heart of Tex-Mex culture and a taco lovers’ haven. I try to visit San Antonio at least once per year when I return to my Texas roots and always make it my mission to search out a new tasty taco joint or two along the way.
There are some great Texas based restaurant chains that serve up good Tex-Mex staples, but the best place to find a good taco is always at some off-the-beaten-path mom and pop taco stand or Mexican grocery store.
Be sure to follow writer Mike Sutter as he goes on a quest to bring the heart of the Tex-Mex world the ultimate taco adventure on his 365 Day of Tacos journey.
