Chipotle? Try These Tacos on The Trail, Hillary Clinton

Don’t Settle When Stumping; Go For the Real Deal

So, Fox News anchors wondered if Hillary Clinton’s Chipotle stop in Ohio was Hispanic outreach. More than likely, the Democratic presidential candidate was just jonesing for a burrito bowl since the stop was unannounced. But to earn real street cred, Hillary’s campaign bus should stop at these joints as she makes her way along the campaign trail. Take notes, Rubio, Cruz and Bush.

While fundraising in LA, she must head out to Boyle Heights to order the Manny’s Special. It’s the size of a baby, so don’t expect to finish it. The press plane can enjoy her leftovers.

Des Moines: La Rosa

Hillary can hit La Rosa for some chilaquiles as she makes her way across the state hitting 99 counties during Iowa caucus time.

Tucson: El Charro

Arizona is a border state that may likely lean to the Republican candidate, which should give Hillary even more reason to hit El Charro in Tucson for the Carne Seca.

Santa Fe, New Mexico: Maria’s

The food here is so authentic, Chipotle wishes it was as legit as Maria’s. Hillary should stop here and have their green chile stew — nothing gets food to the polls more than food.

Dayton, Ohio: Taqueria Mixteca

The state has an impressive record for picking presidents and the 166,000 Latino voters can the difference. Which means if Hillary’s thinking aheadshe needs to head to Dayton’sTaqueria Mixteca for the Bistek Campechano.

Hampton Roads, Virginia: Jessy’s Taqueria

Hillary has a friend in Virginia in governor Terry McAuliffe, but why take chances? The state has a history of backing Republicans, so heading to Jessy’s to try their famous tacos is in order.

Madison, Wisconsin: Taqueria Guadalajara

Hillary better spend some time in Wisconsin if she wants to keep the state blue. A visit to Taqueria Guadalajara for Jalisco-style tacos in Madison may help her cause. We recommend the gorditas or tripa tacos.

Wilmington, Delaware: La Poblanita

With Vice President Joe Biden stumping his home state, Delaware is expected to stay blue. But Hillary shouldn’t risk it. She should set a chalupa date with Joe Biden at hit La Poblanita.

Las Vegas: Original Lindo Michoacan

Obama carried Nevada in 2012 because he won Clark and Washoe counties, although he lost the rest. Carnitas at Vegas’ Lindo Michoacan will impress the locals.

Nashua, New Hampshire: El Colima Mexican Restaurant

The nation’s first primary will likely be a walkover for Clinton (will there be any Democratic challengers?) but hanging onto the Northeast may prove critical for the Dems. Hanging out at El Colima in Nashua will only help her case.

Philadelphia: Los Gallos Mexican Taqueria

Scoring Pennsylvania’s vote in 2016 will be pivotal. The state is predominantly Democratic, but it’s a tight race and mingling with a few of the party’s 4 million voters at Los Gallos for some beef short rib tacos at Los Gallos on Philly’s South Side will surely score among the delegates.

El Paso: Lucy’s

Forget it. Texas is a lost cause for the Democrats. The last party nominee to carry the state was Jimmy Carter in 1976. But not so fast. With more than 3.8 million Latino voters, Hillary might make history and take the state’s vote especially if she schedules a meet-and-greet at Lucy’s over their famous cheesy machaca plate.

Charleston, South Carolina — Taco Boy

It will be tough to shift the red tide of South Carolina, but it can be done with a trip to a place called Taco Boy that will let the state’s 82,000 Hispanic voters know that she’s serious about winning them over.

We’ve seen our fair share of weird brand collabs in the past, but this is truly one we didn’t see coming.

On Thursday, Chipotle and e.l.f. Cosmetics announced that they were teaming up for a collaboration.

Both makeup-lovers and Chipotle-lovers can have fun with the team-up. According to the press release, e.l.f will be selling Chipotle-themed makeup and Chipotle will be selling makeup-themed food. Confused? Keep reading.

On March 9th, e.l.f. cosmetics is launching their e.l.f. x Chipotle makeup collection, a range of products that includes a Chipotle-themed eyeshadow palette, a tinted lip-gloss, an avocado-shaped beauty sponge, and a makeup bag that looks exactly like Chipotle’s famous to-go bags.

The eyeshadow palette is made up of 12 shades, each of which are named after one of Chipotle’s signature ingredients. For example, the leaf-green shade is called “Lettuce”, the buttery gold shade is called “Corn Salsa”…you get the picture. The “Make It Hot” lip gloss is a sheer, hot-pink shade that is formulated with Vitamin E and coconut oil.

And as an added bonus, when you purchase the Chipotle eyeshadow palette, you’ll be emailed a voucher for free Chipotle chips and guac.

But makeup isn’t the only aspect of the promotion. Chipotle, too, will be offering a limited-time option. The fast-casual restaurant will be selling an entrée called “Eyes. Chips. Face. Bowl.” And in honor of e.l.f. Cosmetics’ vegan and cruelty free products, the menu item will be vegan.

The bowl will consist of white rice, pinto beans, hot salsa, corn salsa, guac, lettuce, and a side of chips. But it won’t be available forever! You’ll only be able to find it in the “Featured” section of Chipotle’s website or app from March 10 through March 17.

If you’re surprised by this collab, you’re not the only one. After all, “Mexican food” isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of makeup.

But e.l.f. and Chipotle seem to think that they’re a match made in heaven. After all, this is the second time the two popular brands have joined forces.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to lead culture and make authentic connections with Gen-Z alongside brands that share similar values,” said Chipotle’s VP of digital marketing, Tressie Lieberman.

And e.l.f.’s CMO was equally effusive. “There is nothing tastier or prettier than the combination of burritos and makeup!” said Kory Marchisotto, in a statement. “We have long admired Chipotle and we are thrilled to come together to do things that neither one of us have done before. We share the same renegade spirit and are both committed to bringing the best ingredients to our consumers at extraordinary prices.”

e.l.f.s Chipotle collection launches on March 9th, and the line’s prices range from $8 to $18. Get notified on the launch by going over to e.l.f.’s site. Head to Chipotle’s app or website after March 10th to order their exclusive “Eyes. Chips. Face. Bowl.” entrée.

Ricky Martin Says That It Is ‘Super Sad’ For Him To See Latinos Voting for Donald Trump


Ricky Martin Says That It Is ‘Super Sad’ For Him To See Latinos Voting for Donald Trump

Ricky Martin says when it comes to the Latino support of Joe Biden for president, voters bang. He also says those who are voting for Donald Trump completely bomb.

In an interview with The Big Ticket podcast, the “Livin La Vida Loca” singer highlighted the importance of voter turnout and laid out his reasons for giving former Vice President Joe Biden his own vote.

Speaking to The Big Ticket, Martin underlined his efforts to see change this year.

“I’ve been supporting Biden forever,” the singer shared on the podcast. “I think he is the only option we have and he is great. He has been in politics all his life. This is the moment. We all need to get together and be loud about the course of this nation.” For Martin, it seems that the backing of Biden by the Latino community is especially important and seeing anything less is something he truly cannot understand. Martin went so far as to highlight his disbelief in seeing Wanda Vázquez, the current governor of Puerto Rico, endorsing Trump this year.

“Who is that? Next!” he exclaimed during the podcast. “She doesn’t even exist. She wasn’t even elected by the people. She’s not part of this conversation.”

Trump went onto call Latinos in the United States who support Trump “really scary.”

When asked about Latinos in the United States who support Trump, Martin said it’s “really scary” to see but he remains positive that the majority of Latinos will vote him out of office.

“It’s really scary,” he said, before commenting that he does think that the majority of Latinos will vote for Biden. “It’s super sad. I think. Trumpeters make a lot of noise. And it’s scary to see their enthusiasm but us, we’re doing what’s right, the right way and we’ll see what happens in November. But I’m very optimistic.”

“I am a Latino, gay, married to an Arab living in Trump’s America,” he said about his husband Jwan Yosef, a Syrian-born, Swedish painter Marin married in 2017. “We check all the boxes.”

Martin’s comments come at a time when Trump continues to receive support from Cubans in Florida.

The battleground state has seen Cuban Americans, who often vote Republican, make last-ditch efforts to reelect Trump. “Florida’s Cuban American voters remain a bright spot in Trump’s effort to retain his winning coalition from 2016,” ABC reported. “Polls show his strong support from these key voters may even be growing to include the younger Cuban Americans that Democrats once considered their best hope of breaking the GOP’s hold. For Trump, that support could prove essential in a tight race in a state he must win to beat Democratic challenger Joe Biden.”

Referring to the increase in early voters this year, Martin says he’s happy to see voters turning out. “For that, I’m extremely happy,” he explained. “We’ve had plans of if we might leave the country. No, we have to stay here and fight for our rights and for what we believe.”

You can check out Martin’s full interview with The Big Ticket on Nov. 3.
