This Taco Will Make You Rethink Your Life Choices
Chacho’s Taco in Corpus Christi, Texas, is challenging patrons to a test of endurance, sort of. If you can eat a four pound taco, Chacho’s will give you a t-shirt, your name will be honored on their hall of fame, and you won’t even have to pay for the meal. All for the grand total value of $9.99. While eating four pounds of anything might not sound like the hardest challenge ever, there’s a catch. You have ten minutes to eat the entire thing. Still think you can do it?
In the last 18 years, only five people have to complete the “All-Mighty Chacho’s Taco Challenge.”
The ingredients include a 14-inch custom sized tortilla (the size of a large pizza), beans, carne guisada, bacon, potatoes, cheese, and, of course, egg.
Undeterred, customers give it their best when trying to defeat the All Mighty Taco.
This kid could use the tortilla as a blanket.
Others probably realize they’ve bitten off literally more than they can chew.
Justice is served… it’s a joke about her name tag.
Not everyone who orders the All Mighty Taco is in it to win it.
Like Big Foot or the Chupacabra, photos of this thing are hard to believe.
Most people just want a photo with it, or a meal that’ll last all week.
Because who has time to meal prep?
However, there are a few talented souls who have walked away a “winner.”
That’s the smile of a man who knows he’s in trouble.
The All Mighty Taco’s popularity soared recently because of this Facebook photo of Norma Jean Toro tackling the beast.
This photo was originally posted a year ago, but thanks to Facebook’s memories feature, Norma reposted it to her wall. Within a few hours, the photo was getting tons of love from friends and strangers.
But Chacho’s Taco was already a hit with locals and tourists, thanks to Texas Monthly, who named the “Weenie And Egg” as one of the best tacos in Corpus Christi.
As Mary Gutierrez, owner of Chacho’s Tacos, told KRISTV, “We feel very honored to be able to get a call from Texas Monthly letting me know that we were going to be coming out. We have people coming in every day for the advertisements I guess from Texas Monthly.”
While good food keeps people coming back, it’s photos with the All Mighty Taco that get the most love from fans.
