This Is How Jewish Latinos Get Down With The Food During Hanukkah

Hanukkah is just around the corner. Have you decided what you are making for your friends and family this year? Here is 7 different foods you can make to give you Hanukkah celebrations that Latino twist!

1. Mexican Ricotta Croquettes


We all know that Hanukkah is centered around fired foods to honor the story of the oil that was said to have only been enough for one day but burned for eight.

2. Jalapeño Potato Latkes


Latkes are a major part of the Hanukkah celebration, but sometimes just potatoes can get kind of boring. Give your family a spicy treat by adding a few jalapeños and BAM!

3. Zucchini Fritters


If your family isn’t into the whole spicy thing, try substituting your potato latkes for some scrumptious zucchini fritters. The recipe is the same just swap put potatoes for zucchini.

4. Whitefish Guacamole


Guacamole is amazing already, right? So, why not incorporate this staple into your Hanukkah festivities? It’s all the same but you just add some smoke whitefish and you’ve given your guests a great meal to celebrate the holiday.

5. Buñuelos


Buñuelos are a great substitute for jelly filled doughnuts. And, tbh, does anyone really need an excuse to make these amazing desserts?

6. Brisket Tacos


No cheese needed to really enjoy these bad boys if you are keeping it Kosher. Plus, taco, amirite?

7. Matzo Tortillas

If you are looking to keep it Kosher, you can substitute the masa in a traditional tortilla for matzo and problem solved.

Prisoner Starts His Own Cooking Show On TikTok And, Like, How

Another day, another prisoner blowing up on TikTok. Jeron Combs, 31, is the latest TikTok prisoner sensation with his cooking show. You read that right. The man is creating foods in his prison cell and broadcasting it to the rest of the world via TikTok.

One of his most popular videos is the burrito that he was able to put together in his prison cell. The 31-year-old, who is in prison for first-degree murder and attempted murder, took his 1.3 million TikTok followers through a step-by-step guide to create the burritos.

We can’t be sure but it does seems like he cooks for all of those around him.

We don’t know how many burritos he made but it is clear he is cooking for more than just he and his cellmate. Unless he and his cellmate are hungry enough to eat all of those burritos.

He has managed to use his metal bed frame to double as a griddle to cook the food.

His bed frame is literally used to heat up his food and to make those burritos hot and fresh. Not going to lie, they look pretty delicious.

He even shows how he is able to heat up his bed frame to create the griddle: a hot plate.

Genius, tbh. However, how was he able to get everything that he needed in order to create his griddle bed? Also, how did he set up a TikTok account and manage to post regularly? His burrito video has more than 4 million views alone.

For some, this is what the Internet is for.

Social media has a way of always outdoing itself with wild content. Like, this is not the first nor will it be the last prisoner to use TikTok or any other social media platform to flex. Who can forget the prisoner who posted to Instagram about the Popeye’s chicken sandwich?

For others, this is some wholesome content.

Sure, the video itself is pretty fine. However, do not forget that the man is in prison for murder. So, while the prison burrito might be a fun gimmick, it is still odd to celebrate.

A whole other group of people is just made their boy got exposed.

What do you think about the prison burrito video?

Chuck E Cheese Is Advertising As Pasqually’s Pizza And Thank You

The pandemic is forcing everyone to find new ways to survive financially, especially with businesses that have a lot of unexpected contacts. Chuck E Cheese is one of those businesses and their way of staying afloat right now has people lol’ing with respect.

Chuck E Cheese is thriving in this new economy.

That’s right. Chuck E Cheese is still selling its pizza but under a different name. You won’t find Chuck E Cheese in your Grubhub but you might find Pasqually’s Pizza. Some think it was so people wouldn’t know that it was Chuck E Cheese while some think the idea is clever and loveable.

You see, Pasqually is the chef who plays in Chuck E Cheese’s band.

That’s right. You might have thought that Chuck E Cheese was trying to hide that they were selling their pizza on the sly but that ain’t it. Chuck E Cheese is just giving the man behind the pizza his chance to shine. Chuck E isn’t about taking the credit away from the true pizza talent.

The revelation did bring up Chuck E Cheese’s past, that people didn’t know.

There’s a lot it seems we didn’t know about Chuck E Cheese. First, he was an orphan who never knew his birthday. Who knew that? Since he never knew his birthday, he has decided to celebrate the birthdays of the children. Also, street walker? What could that possibly mean?

It’s a pretty smart move for the chain that is a logistical nightmare when it comes to reopening.

It’s literally a place for children to run around sweating and touching everything. Imagine having to come up with the protocol to properly sanitize a Chuck E Cheese to keep the virus under control. Selling Pasqually’s pizzas seems like a solid plan for now.

Some people are not at all upset about this.

Legit, it isn’t that bad. Any kid’s party at Chuck E Cheese is always made right when you dig into that pizza. This is really a win for all of us adults who just want to taste our childhood once more.

So, who is ordering some Pasqually’s Pizza?

Go ahead and treat yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
