A Writer Got Roasted After Asking Mexican Restaurants To Nix The Lime That Comes With Tacos

Peanut butter and jelly. Cookies and milk. Rice and Beans. Tacos and lime. Some things just go perfectly together. Be it fajitas, carnitas, or fish, we can’t imagine tacos without the hit of citrus that lime provides. However, it seems that this preference isn’t as widely held as we thought.

In fact, one Twitter user was willing to put his unpopular opinion out there to be torn down by true taco fans.  

Sportswriter Tyler Conway took to Twitter Monday to denounce the classic combo of lime and tacos.

The writer stood by his opinion, saying that lime “contaminates” everything around it. This isn’t really the way lime works as it needs to be squeezed into order to give its juice. Still, he also claimed that, although he likes his food spicy, he doesn’t want or need the zest that lime provides. What followed was a well-deserved ratio full of not so kind replies to his stance. 

Twitter was quick to come to tacos’ defense and roast Conway for his anti-lime ways.

Comedian Cristela Alonza responded to Conway’s tweet with a request that he not eat Mexican food if he doesn’t like the way it is served. Lime is essential to Mexican cuisine. If he doesn’t enjoy it, there are tons of other options that are served sans lime. 

Some pointed out that it’s easy to exclude the lime with a simple request.

The humble little lime that comes with a plate of tacos isn’t put there to be an object of contention but if you don’t like it, you can always ask for it to be excluded. It’s as easy as that to get the tacos you want without lime and without punishing the rest of us with the suggestion that Mexican restaurants stop including the fruit.  

Others suggested another restaurant to pick up tacos from.

If you’re looking for a lime-less taco option, you can always hit up a much less authentic “Mexican” restaurant like Taco Bell. You’re sure to not find a single lime there. Unfortunately, you won’t find real Mexican food either.  

Many observed that an opinion like this could only come from a White non-Latinx person.

Of course, Twitter had its usual jokes about the stereotype of White people and their preference of less seasoning. Considering Conway’s anti-lime stance, maybe the stereotype is well-founded.

Most responses were just 100% pro-lime and its fresh deliciousness.

Lime is one of those ingredients that bring out the flavor in foods. If you are looking for less flavor with your dinner, you can always go for a lime-less taco. However, we can’t in good conscience support that decision. 

Ultimately, we can’t see how his controversial taco opinion was even worth a tweet.

Twitter / @kaludiasays

We hope Conway learned something after being roasted by all of taco-loving Twitter. If your opinion is going to get you noting but called out, maybe keep it to yourself. Next time, just ask for no limes on your taco plate and be done with it.

Family Of Man Who Died From Taco Eating Contest Sue Fresno Grizzlies Owner

Dana Hutchings, 41, entered a taco eating contest during a Fresno Grizzlies game in 2019. He choked and died during the contest and now his son has filed a lawsuit against the baseball team.

The son of a man who died from a taco eating contest is suing for wrongful death.

Dana Hutchings, 41, died after choking during a taco eating contest during a Fresno Grizzlies game. His son has filed a wrongful death lawsuit claiming that the event organizers were not equipped to host the event. Furthermore, the lawsuit claims that the organizers failed to provide a medical response team.

“People say all the time he knew what he was getting into, well clearly he didn’t,” Martin Taleisnik, an attorney representing Hutchings’ son, Marshall told CBS17.

Marshall and his attorney are pushing back at the notion that Dana should have known better.

People have sounded off on social media criticizing the family for filing the lawsuit. Yet, the family and their attorney are calling attention to the lack of information given to contestants.

“If you don’t know all the pitfalls, how can you truly be consenting and participating freely and voluntarily? It’s a risk that resulted in a major loss to Marshall,” Taleisnik told CBS17.

Dana’s family is seeking a monetary settlement from the Fresno Grizzlies owners.

The wrongful death lawsuit names Fresno Sports and Events as the responsible party. The lawsuit also notes that alcohol was made available to contestants and added to the likelihood of the tragedy.

“We are devastated to learn that the fan that received medical attention following an event at Tuesday evening’s game has passed away. The Fresno Grizzlies extend our heartfelt prayers and condolences to the family of Mr. Hutchings,” a statement from the Fresno Grizzlies read after the death in 2019. “The safety and security of our fans is our highest priority. We will work closely with local authorities and provide any helpful information that is requested.”

A Mexican Artist Is Making Pancake Art That’s Too Beautiful To Eat

Social media is where people can show off just about anything they create. This includes art in any and all media, like pancake art. Claudia, the creator behind Nappan Pancake art, is the latest artist watching their art reach the masses.

Claudia, the artist behind Nappan Pancake art, got her start because of the pandemic.

The artist first started to play around with pancake art last spring break when the pandemic forced businesses and schools to close. Claudia wanted to get more creative with her kids’ breakfasts since they were now always at home.

“I started experimenting with making Pancake art,” Claudia recalls to mitú. “At first I only used the color of the natural dough and a little cocoa. At first, I just used the ketchup dispensers and little by little I learned.”

Claudia uses her pancake art to honor some truly iconic people.

Cepillín recently died and the loss was felt throughout the community. He made our lives joyous and fun with his music, especially his birthday song. Some of the creations are done for fans who request to see their faves turned into delicious pancake art.

The artist loves creating the edible works of art.

The journey of becoming a pancake artist has been a fun adventure for Claudia and her children. The more she has practiced, the more she has been able to do.

“Sometimes I scream with excitement and I go to all the members of my house to see it,” Claudia says about her successes. “Other times it’s just a feeling like “disappointment could be better” other times it just breaks or burns and then I just cry but it usually feels very satisfying.”

You can check out all of her creations on TikTok.
