“Pollito con Papas” by Los Vaskez

We’re thinking the finger lickin’ good chicken legs may belong to a chick, not a chicken. Oh and doesn’t that pollo on the album cover look more like a turkey?

“La Mayonesa” by  Chocolate

A group named Chocolate singing about mayonnaise? Estos mañosos are not singing about a condiment that you put on sandwiches. They’re going on and on about getting whipped up into a creamy and dizzying frenzy by a woman with a tattoo on her back. ?

“La Papa Sin Catsup” by Gloria Trevi

Trevi uses her signature growl on this song from the album “Más Turbada Que Nunca” to explain that some dumbass has left her like fries without ketchup. But the best line has got to be when she says she was left like “un nopal sin lo baboso y el baboso eres tú!”

“Arroz con Habichuela” by El Gran Combo

This song isn’t literally about rice and beans, it’s about “sabor, sabor, sabor de la vieja escuela, salsa caribeña, rumba, plena.”

“Caramelo y Chocolate” by Sexteto Juventud

The chocolate and caramel is actually a nena that is so freakin’ sweet she’ll put you in danger of dying from diabetes.

“Patacón Pisao” by Johnny Ventura

So this dude, who is married to Josefa, only wants to get down with pescado and “patacón pisao pisao.” But Josefa is not puttin’ out the fish or smashin’ this guy’s banana. Pobrecito.

“Camarón Pelao” by Los Polifaceticos

Hmmm, maybe this one really is about shrimp “con salsita y con limon” because no man in his right mind really wants to compare any part of himself to a little shrimp, right?

“A Mi Me Gustan Las Pupusas”  by Grupo Invasion

There is no denying that “pupusas con curtido y salsa de tomate” are delicious even if they aren’t served by a lady wearing an apron and tiny chonies.

“Caldo de Pollo” by Grupo Mojado

These boys have the recipe for happiness. It doesn’t matter if you can’t pay the rent or your the love of your life just dumped you “con el caldo de pollo se quita todo mal.”

“La Arepa” by Aniceto Molina

“Margarita vende arepas calientes,” but she makes a special one that she doesn’t sell to just anyone. In order to let someone eat the special arepa, she has to be sure. That sounds like a lot of commitment for an arepa.

“La Tortilla” by Joe Cuba

He’s singin’ about how much he wants to taste the tortilla, but I guess THAT tortilla is kind of hard to get.

“Salchica con Huevo” by Jimmy Sabater

“Salchicha con huevo me pidio al amanecer.” No she didn’t! That means she spent the night and she still wanted sausage and eggs for breakfast. Naughty!

Billboard Listed The Top 50 Latin Music Songs Of All Time And Some People Have Questions

Latin music is something we all grew up with. Our parents raised us on the voices of Celia Cruz and Vicente Fernandez. We cleaned the house and entertained ourselves on road trips to these artists and they are ingrained in our DNA. Billboard recently released a list of the 50 best Latin music songs of all time and some are undoubtedly iconic and others just aren’t Latin music.

Billboard dropped their list for the 50 best Latin music songs of all time and some of them are truly classics.

Amor Prohibido” by Selena, “Guantanamera” by Celia Cruz, “El Rey” by Vicente Fernandez, and “El dia que me quieras” by Luis Miguel are just a few of the songs on the list that deserve all the praise. They are songs that transport us to our childhoods and cherished family memories.

The list also includes some newer songs that have rocked out adult worlds. “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi, “Mi Gente” by J Balvin, “El Farsante” by Ozuna, and “Tusa” by Karol G and Nicki Minaj all made the list. Not only do these songs speak to the Latino audience, they have been able to go mainstream sharing our musical culture with the world. That’s something to admire and respect because it gives our community representation like never before.

The list has proven to be just want some people have been asking for.

Tbh, this would make a pretty amazing road trip playlist if you need to pass the time. Nothing like a mix of Latin music songs playing along to give you a big, inclusive sabor of Latin America through music. A little be of Mexico and a little bit of Puerto Rico mixed in with a little bit of Colombia is pure joy and magic.

However, a lot of people are questioning the list’s inclusion of Spanish artists.

The list has various artists who are not Latino, but Spanish. There seems to be an unspoken rule in the music industry that music in Spanish is automatically Latin music. Fans have long been arguing against the industry’s blanket label of Spanish-language music automatically being considered Latin music.

Rosalía, who has arguably become the face of the debate, is listed as having one of the best Latin music songs of all time.

While Rosalía does make some good music, there is a real push to make sure the artists of Latin American roots are uplifted in Latin music. There is nothing wrong with including Rosalía in your Spanish-language playlists but Latin music fans want the distinction made that some artists aren’t Latino.

You can check out the rest of the Billboard list here.

Mountain Dew Margaritas Are Apparently A Thing At Red Lobster Now?

Mountain Dew Margaritas Are Apparently A Thing At Red Lobster Now?

We’ve seen all kinds of takes on the timeless classic that is a Margarita. From frozen Margaritas to ones with cranberry juice and dashes of blue curaçao and twists of basil and ginger beer we’ve literally seen it all. Or so we thought.

Recently, Red Lobster announced that they’re doing a Mountain Dew-take on the beloved and salty tequila cocktail.

Red Lobster’s DEW-Garita promises to set you aglow.

The drink is the first official Mountain Dew cocktail and of course, it is bright lime green. While the cocktail’s recipe is being kept strictly under wraps, like everything at Red Lobster’s, it’s supposed to pair “perfectly” with Red Lobster’s iconic Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

“Red Lobster is thrilled to work with PepsiCo, not only because it has a great portfolio of brands, but specifically because of the food and beverage innovation possibilities,” Nelson Griffin,the Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer at Red Lobster said in a statement about the drink.

Red Lobster’s DEW-Garita is due to debut at Red Lobster locations nationwide in September and by the end of 2020.

The Margarita is an iconic Mexican drink related to a drink called Rhe Daisy.

The classic Tequila sour cocktail is one of the most beloved cocktails in the world. According to Wine Enthusiast “One story claims that the drink was created in 1938, as Mexican restaurant owner Carlos (Danny) Herrera mixed it for gorgeous Ziegfeld showgirl Marjorie King. Supposedly, Tequila was the only alcohol that King would abide, so Herrera added lime juice and salt.”

To make your own classic Margarita check out this recipe below

Ingredients

  • Coarse salt
  • Lime wedge
  • 2 ounces white Tequila
  • 1 ounce orange liqueur
  • 1 ounce lime juice

Directions

Shake out coarse salt on a plate. Wet the rim of a glass by using the lime wedge. Press the rim of the glass in the plate of salt to coat. Add ice to the glass.

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the rest of the ingredients. Shake well, and pour into the prepared glass over ice.
