Testing Taco Bell’s Naked Chicken Chalupa with ManBQue’s John Carruthers
This week, I’m joined by John Carruthers, co-founder of meat social club ManBQue (manbque.com) and co-author of two must-own ManBQue cookbooks. We take a trip to a northwest side Taco Bell on the day of the national release of the Naked Chicken Chalupa… Taco Bell’s new menu item that features taco contents folded into a shell made out of fried chicken.
Is it any good? Well, it was enough to make John say, “I feel like Salieri in Mozart.” You’ll know what that means when you hear it in context. Promise.
After a definitive Naked Chicken Chalupa discussion, we also talk about:
*The ultimate Facebook Live fail
*The movie on Netflix you need to watch RIGHT NOW. Seriously. We both can’t recommend it enough.
*Tumblr language. You know, like, “woke.”
*The difficulties of wing-eating
*Drinking “Diabetes Dew,” the precursor to “Type Dew Diabetes”
*The amazing dishes made at the most recent ManBQue event
*Nashville hot chicken: KFC vs. Budlong
*The different people who gawked into the car as we were recording
*Why eating at Taco Bell is like going to get your haircut
*Minor league baseball in Tennessee
